The wine is deep ruby red in the glass with alluring aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant and subtle notes of spice and graphite. The palate is full-bodied and structured with silky, ripe tannins and a lingering finish.

Château Larose Perganson has 35 hectares of vineyard planted at a density of 10,000 vines per hectare, ensuring a very low yield per vine, which in turn lends more intensity in the wines. The vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. The vines are 35 years old on average and are planted on one of the oldest layers of Médoc gravel (the 'Pyrenean layer'). This encourages the vines to search deep for nutrients, resulting in a wine of excellent concentration.

Château Larose Perganson lies in Saint-Laurent-Médoc, on the border of Pauillac and Saint-Julien, next to the vineyards of Château Latour. Winemaker Franck Bijon produces a Cru Bourgeois that rivals many Classed Growths. This is apt, as the property was sold at Classed Growth prices a decade prior to the 1855 Classification. The property dates back to 1719 but, unfortunately, it fell into disrepair and by 1855 quality and prices had dropped.
