Château Labégorce 2015 is a Margaux that is among the great vintages of the property. It might even be the best vintage that the property has ever produced. Intense in color, the wine expresses frankly and generously rich aromas of black fruit dominated by blackcurrant and blackberry jam, without losing its freshness. Aeration confirms the purity of fruit and develops spicy accents. The initial entry on the palate is dynamic. the mid-palate is dense and silky, with very elegant tannins already perfectly integrated into the wine, leaving a feeling of fullness and tactile sensuality. The final fruit and freshness cause a savory sensation. A Margaux with lace and frankness, very harmonious and built for aging.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Labegorce is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc matured in 45% new and 55% one-year-old barrels. Deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of red and black cherries, black plums and cassis with touches of charcuterie and tapenade, the medium-bodied palate offers great concentration with a firm frame of grainy tannins, finishing long and savory.
