A terrific value for this Cru Bourgeois red wine! Classic Bordeaux in the glass at a fraction of the price. Previous vintages of this wine won gold in the prestigious Concours de Bordeaux competition. Loaded with wild red berry aromas, cedar forest and black plums with a touch of spice. Full-bodied and savoury. Perfect with filet mignon.

Food pairings: beef, marinated steaks, game with rosemary Portobello mushrooms.

Reviews and Ratings

Terrific value from the Médoc, Bordeaux wine region. Château La Gorce (2011) is full-bodied and savoury. This Bordeaux red wine blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot grapes was awarded silver at the Concours Vignerons Indépendants 2012. The wine was aged in oak barrel for 21 months before being bottled. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
