Under the same ownership as neighboring Larose-Trintaudon, this 86-acre estate is smaller. From close to Pauillac's vineyards, this blend holds a preponderance of Cabernet Sauvignon. Lightly smoky and richly endowed, the wood-aged wine has spice, ripe tannins and good potential. Drink from 2023. ROGER VOSS Editors' Choice

Plums and blue fruit with salt-block and chalk undertones. Medium body. Creamy tannins. Savory and fruity finish.
Very deep, dark ruby color with nice shimmering reflections. The nose combines notes of beeswax, cinnamon stick, Madagascar vanilla and licorice. The palate is marked by an almost perfect balance and overall indulgence. The finish is already smooth, with complex aromas of black fruit, bramble. A vintage that is already attractive with its harmonious, smooth and very aromatic profile.
Blend: 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 57% Merlot, 12% de Petit Verdot
During an Auction in 1719, Jean-Pierre du Pontet, Counselor to the King, acquires the Estate of Perganson. He adds this property to Langoa and Canet which he already owned. At his death, his oldest son M. Pontet de Canet inherits his properties in Saint-Julien; his younger son, M. Pontet-Perganson, in turn inherits the Château in Saint-Laurent. The first brokering of the great wines of Perganson was done by the Lawton courtier in 1742. Its market price regularly put it at the 5th Classified Growth level. The name of Larose st appears in the 1830’s, after Henry Delaroze, co-inheritor of future Gruaud-Larose in Saint-Julien, becomes owner of erganson as well in 1815. Pontet-Perganson then becomes Larose-Perganson. In 1986, Allianz purchases the Estate, partaking in the tremendous potential of its terroir.
