Chateau Labegorce, like many chateau in Bordeaux, takes its name from one of the estates early owners, the Grosse family, who held an interest in the land that dates back all the way back to the 14th century. For centuries prior to the French Revolution, Chateau Labegorce was a massive estate. In fact, it was one of the bigger properties at the time in the Medoc.
Hubert Perrodo set out with the goal to reunite all three vineyards of the original Labegorce estate. He purchased L’Abbe Grosse de Grosse in 2002. However, Hubert Perrodo was only able to buy the chateau. The vineyards were sold to Chateau Margaux. He completed the final piece of the puzzle when he bought Labegorce Zede in 2005. All three vineyards were once again merged into one large vineyard.
The 53 hectare vineyard of Chateau Labegorce is planted to 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. This represents a change in the vineyard as the percentage of Merlot has been increased. The size of the vineyard has also expanded from 36 hectares to 53 hectares.
