"55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot. Dark plum fruit on the nose. There's a note that is both a little green and a little overripe. Juicy, relatively soft on the palate. Drink from 2014 to 2017. (JR)" (10/12) - 15 out of 20 Points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages.
"Chateau La Gorre (or "cuvee des Cazaillots de La Gorre"), made from the most qualitative grapes, coming from the oldest parcels, and matured in oak barrels during 12 months. Authentic Medoc wine, which could age for several years, with perfect tasting balance and enticing flavours. It is the top wine of the property." -Winery
