Varietal: Bordeaux Blend
Sub-Region: Margaux
Region: Bordeaux
Color: Red
Country/State: France
93 Vinous, Antonio Galloni (3/2021) "The 2018 Labegorce is a plump, juicy Margaux that will drink well right out of the gate. Succulent dark cherry, plum, spice, licorice, chocolate and new French oak are all kicked up in this decidedly opulent, heady Margaux. Soft curves and pliant fruit add to its raciness. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. Drinking Window: 2023 - 2038."
93 Wine Advocate (3/31/2021) The 2018 Labegorce is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. It has 14% alcohol. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with a beautiful perfume of kirsch, black cherry compote and cassis, plus hints of licorice, lilacs and baking spices. The medium-bodied palate is elegantly played with soft tannins and compelling freshness supporting the fragrant red and black fruits, finishing on a spicy note. Drink Date: 2023 - 2040."
92 Wine Spectator (3/31/2021) "Silky and refined in feel, with perfumy black currant paste, plum reduction and blackberry compote notes forming the core while sandalwood, black tea and cedar accents drape the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2034."
92 Decanter (3/31/2021) "This is a high energy wine with bright floral aromas, super vibrant cranberry-cassis flavours, and a plump richness. The Perrodo family united two neighbouring properties that had once been part of the Chateau Labegorce estate - L'Abbe de Gorse and Labegorce Zede - bringing the total to 65 hectares, with mostly gravelly sandy soil. Now the average age of the vines is nearly 30 years. Unlike the equally impressive 2016, this blend is Cabernet Sauvignon dominant at 50% with Merlot at 44% and Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc each at 3%. The summer, says winemaker Marjolaine de Coninck Was amazing for ripeness. Drinking Window 2022 - 2039."
94 Jeb Dunnuck (3/11/2021) "The 2018 Chateau Labegorce is a perfumed, already complex Margaux based on 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Its medium ruby hue gives way to lovely notes of blueberries, raspberries, flowers, sandalwood, and assorted baking spice cabinet-like nuances. Medium to full-bodied, with beautifully pure fruit and silky tannins, it's a wine that grows on you with time in the glass. It's not a blockbuster, but it exudes elegance and class as well as balance. Enjoy bottles any time over the coming 20-25 years or more. Maturity: 2021 - 2046."
