Château Labégorce 2016
We have managed to purchase 10 x Cases (12x75cl OWC) of the huge scoring Margaux property, Château Labégorce, which has received critical acclaim by Neal Martin and is offered on a first-come-first-serve basis at only £240.00 IB per case.
Only 1 point behind the great Château Palmer and Rauzan Segla!
This may be the best Labégorce ever. Full-bodied and dense yet vivid and energetic. Greatness in the making.
The 2016 Labégorce 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”
