Quintessential Margaux notes of red and blue fruits, sandalwood, flowery incense, and baking spices emerge from the 2019 Château Labégorce. Medium to full-bodied, it has a plush, sexy texture, sweet tannins, and a great finish. A final blend of 46% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and a splash of Petit Verdot that was raised in 40% new French oak, it's going to have loads of upfront appeal yet cruise for two decade or more in cold cellars.
The 2019 Labégorce, picked from 19 September to 12 October and matured in 40% new oak, has one of the more flamboyant Margaux bouquets with expressive black cherries, bilberry, light cedar notes and crushed violet. It develops impressive cohesion with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied and what you first notice is the finesse of the tannins. This has a satin-like texture and very well judged acidity. The new oak does poke out a little on the finish - if that can be assimilated during its barrel maturation, this could turn into a very serious Margaux. (NM)
The largest of the Perrodo estates in Margaux, this is a little heavier set and muscular than the Marquis d'Alesme, extremely accomplished and majoring on coffee beans and tobacco alongside blackcurrant fruits. Enjoyable, a little less signature Margaux that its sibling property but this is a delicious gourmet-edged wine, and a brilliant (relatively) value choice in the appellation. (JA)
