Château Labégorce-Zédé

The estate is located in the commune of Castelnau-de-Médoc Margaux in the Médoc (Bordeaux). In the Bordeaux Classification according to the old system, which is no longer valid, it was last classified as "Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel" in 2003. The estate dates back to the 14th century. In the event of a division after the French Revolution, those are in the neighborhood Chateau Labegorce and L'Abbé de Gorsse de Gorsse, as well as the objective. The latter was bought by Barthélémy Benoist in 1795. His daughter and heiress married a Jean-Emile Zédé, whose son Pierre then gave the estate its current name in 1840.

After frequent changes of ownership, it was bought by Luc Thienpont in 1979 and finally went to industrialist Hubert Perrodo (+2006) in 2005, who had already acquired the Château Labégorce in 1989. His tragic death in a ski accident prevented the plan from being realized and the three wineries reunited. The vineyards cover 27 hectares of vineyards with the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (35%) Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The long-lived red wine is aged for 18 months in 50% new barriques. The second wine is called "Domaine Zédé". The red wine "Z de Zédé", which is marketed under Bordeaux Supérieur, is produced from a nine hectare vineyard that does not belong to the Margaux appellation.
