The lion's share of the Labégorce estate was sold in 1795 and handed down generation-by-generation to Gustave Zédé, a man who designed France's first submarine. Gustave and his brother, an admiral of the French navy, added their surname to the name of the property. Having been sold again several times, it was brought back into the Labégorce estate in 2005, with the Zédé monicker disappearing. Since 2009 the production of the vineyard has been included in Château Labégorce.

"Owner Luc Thienpont, whose family also owns Vieux Château Certan and Le Pin in Pomerol, has crafted a classic Margaux with a modern face. Its solid tannins, dry flavors and spice combine with some sweetness, fresh fruits and great balance to give a hugely satisfying, and very food-friendly wine." Roger Voss
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
