Vinous | Antonio Galloni
The 2016 La Gurgue has turned out beautifully. This gorgeous Margaux Cru Bourgeois packs a serious punch, with plenty of blue/purplish berry fruit, grilled herbs, menthol, licorice, smoke and tobacco. Succulent and racy to the core, La Gurgue hits all the right notes. I would prefer to drink the 2016 over the next decade or so, while the wine retains its youthful juiciness.
