The 2016 Labegorce is a blend of 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 52% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot picked between 4-21 October and matured in 45% new oak. What I like about the bouquet is that it is quintessential Margaux--it could not come from anywhere else. Crushed violets infuse black cherries, blueberry and iodine. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very well-judged acidity, an elegant and very charming Margaux with pencil lead and a touch of spice on the long finish. What a brilliant wine from a Margaux estate that has really upped its game.

94-96 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (Issue # 230 - Apr 2017)

This wine is dry and firm, with ample tannins and density. It also has a rich side, which comes from ripe black fruit. Acidity at the end freshens the wine and provides balance.

94-96 points, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast (2017)

This may be the best Labégorce ever. Full-bodied and dense yet vivid and energetic. Greatness in the making. 94

94-95 points, James Suckling (Apr 2017)

Fresh, featuring a racy edge of mesquite that melds with the energetic plum and boysenberry fruit flavors. Stays focused through the finish, picking up alluring spice notes.

91-94 points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator (Apr 2017)
