Gorsse (or Gorce) is a very old name in Guyenne, which spread throughout the Médoc in the Middle Ages. Several Gorsse families have resided for centuries in Margaux and in neighboring municipalities.>An "Abbé Gorce" most likely left his name behind the place.
The existence of Maison Noble de La Bégorce since 1932 is mentioned by Edouard Ferret in its 1868 edition, which presents it as one of the most beautiful and best located in the town of Margaux.
This is the heart of the estate: at the center of the property rises the elegant neo-classical Restoration period house, a work by the architect Corcelles (1765-1843). At the time of construction, the owner was Elisabeth Weltener, widow of Jean Marcellin Bernard, who was succeeded by Sieur Capelle in 1832.
In 1865, Mr. Fortuné Beaucourt in turn acquired it. The vineyard continued to receive the most attentive care which earned it the deserved reputation of a distinguished wine with exquisite taste and distinguished bouquet. The new owner of the estate, with a strong personality, was twice Mayor of Margaux.
He watched the interests of the town very closely. He also had numerous modernization works carried out on the castle, directed by the architect Georges Minvielle (1867-1893). The estate was then sold to the Rooryck family in 1918 and then to the Condom family in 1965, before being finally bought by Hubert Perrodo in 1989.
Mr. Hubert Perrodo (1944-2006), talented French industrialist, owner of the Cru-Bourgeois Château Labégorce in Margaux, acquired the wine estate in 2006. His death precipitated Nathalie Perrodo-Samani, his daughter, at the head of the wine estates . Since 2007, Nathalie has made every effort to give this Cru its letters of nobility and has surrounded itself with this in mind a quality team, led since 2010 by Marjolaine Maurice-de Coninck.
The challenge is significant, but the splendid Margalais terroir of the Marquis is there, and encourages the entire team of the property to redouble their efforts to make this Cru shine within its noble family of Crus Classés de Margaux.
