    Dare I say one of the best wines ever from this Chateau? Lovely freshness, juicy fruit, lots of complex mineral flavors mixed in with a ton of fresh bright fruit, this wine is still a value.

    We were fortunate to taste the 2016 Labegorce three times during our En Primeur trip, and the single adjective that stood out from each of my tasting notes was - “WOW!” It’s hard NOT to fall in love with this wine and the team at Chateau Labegorce. Tremendous passion, proficiency and enthusiasm translate to a wine that will not disappoint. Notes of Asian spice, flowers, bay, cedar and minerals leap from the glass, leading to supple and sweet palate impression. This wine displays great follow through, given its perfect balance of fine tannin and fresh acidity. Incredibly complex for the price, the 2016 Labegorce is sure to please.

    A perfect score from me considering the low price. One of my top 5 from the Margaux region and that says a lot with the neighborhood that includes Palmer and Margaux. We had this wine three times and it was off the charts good every time. 52% Merlot which is high for the property. Such an intense nose of Asian spice and black cherry. Violets on the palate. Very feminine style-so precise. SO DELICIOUS. A must buy-it will sell out quickly. As good as it gets for any wine from anywhere for this price.

    The best this property has ever achieved and possibly THE value of the appellation. This is thick and full with a powerful presence and a long, fine structure. It is flowery, sweet, smooth and the picture of elegance with the violets, cherries and boysenberries blending effortlessly on the gentle finish.

    Chateau Labégorce is unapologetically swimming against the tide in 2016 with a blend that is majority Merlot in a vintage dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon. 52% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot. The Merlot adds a bit more mid-palate breadth here and perhaps a bit more sweetness of fruit, but at a mere 13.5% alcohol the wine is by no means over-ripe. It is, quite decidedly, perfectly ripe. Precisely so, in fact, and in perfect balance with the lively acidity and ultrafine tannins which this 2016 Labégorce shares with the best wines of the vintage. Perhaps the best ever from this estate, and unquestionably one of the great bargains in Margaux today.

    There is absolutely no doubt that the dynamic ownership of Natalie Perrodo and her team of winemaker Marjolaine de Coninck and director Delphine Kolosa have turned Ch. Labegorce and sister estate Ch. Marquis d'Alesme into the hottest values in all of Margaux wine. We tasted this wine 3 times and showed great each time. 2016 Ch. Labegorce is 52% Merlot 38CS 6CF 4PV a big wine with deep juicy fruit with nice richness, good zesty mineral finish. Super Value, 1 Star.
