Château Labegorce Margaux 2014
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Labégorce is one those "dark horses" of the vintage, a wine that has a prosperous future. It has a lovely, very pure and sensual bouquet with lifted redcurrant and wild strawberry scents that really evoke the essence of Margaux. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well -udged acidity, good concentration with a satisfying raspberry preserve-infused finish that demonstrates superb persistence. I adored this Labégorce from barrel and now in bottle it does nothing to disprove my initial enthusiasm. Top Margaux ahoy!
Wine EnthusiastThis is a firm wine, dominated by tannins and dark layers of wood. The black-currant fruit is there to burst out as the wine matures over the next few years. The estate is close to the river, on a dense gravel rise, near Château Margaux.
Wine SpectatorOpen, with a caressing feel to the mix of violet, plum and anise notes. Twinges of licorice snap and bay show on the finish, but this stays relatively graceful overall. A very pretty display of fruit. Drink now through 2026. 10,000 cases made.
