Ch. Labegorce 2015, Margaux, Bordeaux, France
With a score from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate of 93 points, the 2015 Labegorce offers a palate is well balanced and much more reserved than the aromatics: crisp and firm tannin, nicely focused with a pleasing salinity on the structured finish that suggest that this 2015 Labegorce will reward long-term ageing. Drinking now til 2035 according to the experts at Wine Advocate.
Lisa Perotti-Brown wrote this note in Wine Advocate while scoring it 93 points
‘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’.
