Media Reviews

Neal Martin

The 2017 Labégorce was picked 15 September to 4 October and matured in 45% new oak. It has a perfumed bouquet with rose petal and violet aromas infusing the dark cherry and raspberry pastille notes. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine line of acidity. There is some vanillary oak to be subsumed during the élevage, wood tannins just lining the mouth on the aftertaste. But this is a finely made Margaux that should age well over the next 15 to 20 years. 90-92 points

Jane Anson

An excellent Labegorce, full of rich black fruits, textured and layered. A great success in the vintage, with a mouthwatering delivery that holds itself with confidence. It`s not hugely intense, as is often the case this year, but makes up for it with a poised delivery and firm, juicy tannins. 92 points

Julia Harding

Deep cherry red with black core. Sweet-smelling cassis with an attractive dusty graphite overlay. Soft chalky tannins and not a huge amount of fruit on the palate but the tannins are light eno
