Reviews:

"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." -Rated 94, Wine Spectator

"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." -Rated 96, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"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." -Rated 96, Wine Enthusiast

"Deep, rich extraction, black cherry in colour with very well controlled aromatics of damson and creamy cappuccino. This is a gorgeous wine and there are going to be many many fans of the contemporary but utterly controlled and well judged flavours on display here. Luscious and big, but everything has a reason for being where it is, nothing superfluous. One of the best ever from this property." -Rated 93, Decanter

"The 2016 Labégorce is terrific. Pliant, supple and accessible, it offers considerable near- and medium-term appeal in a pliant, juicy style. Dark red fruit, grilled herbs, smoke, licorice and tobacco all flesh out nicely. The 2016 is powerful and dense, but also comes across as a bit less heavy than in the past. It will be interesting to see if that is more related to the vintage or a slightly stylistic shift. Time will tell. Tasted two times." -Rated 91, Vinous

"This may be the best Labégorce ever. Full-bodied and dense yet vivid and energetic. Greatness in the making." -Rated 95, James Suckling
