A sleeper of the vintage and impressive is their cuvee called Larose Perganson, which in 2009 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. It has the silkiness of its sibling, but is fuller-bodied, with more layers of fruit and glycerin and a heady finish (14.3% alcohol). It is opulent and pure, with loads of cassis, black raspberry and licorice notes backed up with some subtle oak. Drink it over the next decade.

Neal Martin tasting London Sept 11 :
2009 Château Larose Perganson 86
Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois 2009 tasting in London. There is certainly a touch of under-ripeness on the nose of the Larose Perganson 2009. The palate is medium-bodied with bold, succulent tannins on the entry, although the finish is a little overdone and lacks a little delineation. Tasted September 2011.
