The Labégorce was picked from 19th until 24th September a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon 45% Merlot 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot aged in 40% new oak. It has an attractive typical Margaux-like bouquet with fine minerality and deftly integrated oak. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity not a heavyweight or opulent Margaux but it is supremely focused with a delectable feminine poised finish that is fresh and natural. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

This could be better in 2011 than 2009. Perhaps its because of new management team at estate. Full and dense with silky tannins and a long finish. Well done.

A good winey core of cassis and blackberry is framed by a noticeable plum skin edge that is in turn offset by polished toast. Modern and direct in style.-J.M.

Made from a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon 36% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that hit 14% natural alcohol the excellent 2011 is a sleeper of the vintage. Textured with soft tannins lots of black currant and black cherry fruit surprising density and a velvety finish it should drink well for a decade or more. This property has come on fabulously well now that well-known oenologist Claude Gros is the consultant.

From 57 hectares of sandy-gravel silt and limestone soils directly across the road from Ch. Margaux. Average vine age is 30 years with yields of 50 hl/ha. The wine spends up to 15 months in new oak. Deep ruby core extends to a bright pink rim. A stylish bouquet of red fruit is accompanied by anise sage and fresh tobacco. The palate offers mocha raspberry and plum flavors along with some good structure. Finishes strong with red fruit and nice texture. Give this a couple of years in bottle and try through 2025.
