1991 Labégorce, Margaux

Purchased direct from the property and a personal favorite of K&L founder Clyde Beffa, Labegorce appeals to those with a preference for "old school" Bordeaux: structured, earthy, meaty, and rustic, with dark fruits and classic Margaux minerality. Time in bottle brings out additional complexity, as the tannins soften as secondary and tertiary aromas and flavors of dried fruits, tobacco, wood, and leather emerge. With 20+ years of age, this wine is mature and ready to drink tonight. Open and enjoy with food...steak, preferably!

2000 Labégorce, Margaux Top Pick!
2000 Labégorce, Margaux

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "If Margaux is the most delicate of the Médoc wines, then this is the epitome of Margaux. It is light, poised and attractively perfumed. The fruit is elegant and fresh with a fine streak of acidity." (6/2003) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Soft, ripe, and fruity, with big, smoky, charred berry-like scents intermixed with tobacco and plum aromas, this medium-bodied 2000 is best drunk over the next 8-10 years." (4/2003) Wine Spectator: "Beautiful aromas of spices, berries and plums. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a clean finish. Best after 2005." (3/2003) K&L Notes: Very focused and quite mineral on the palate. Goo... Read More »

2012 d'Issan, Margaux

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Château d’Issan, builds on the richness of the second wine and adds more body, structure and density. It has an inky purple color and a stunning nose of spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as touches of incense and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and stunningly concentrated, this 2012 is a great success in the vintage, one of the superstars. Moreover, its precociousness suggests it could be drunk in the next 4-5 years or cellared through 2025. I underrated this wine dramatically in my report of April, 2013 (Issue 206). ...Read More » 



2001 du Tertre, Margaux Top Pick!
2001 du Tertre, Margaux

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Under the same ownership as Giscours, and benefiting from big investment in recent years, this is an estate at the top of its form. The wine has aromas of sweet, new wood, while the palate is packed with tarry fruits and spicy wood and herbs. Flavors of ripe black currants give a rich, satisfying feel. This is a wine that is well structured, dense and, given another five years, will be delicious." (6/2005) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Broad and sexy, with supple tannin, the 2001 offers beguiling notes of toast, black currant liqueur, violets, and licorice in a seductive, opulent, medi ...Read More »

2012 Angludet, Margaux

91 points James Suckling: "Earthy and rich with currant, meat and spice undertones. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Needs two or three years to soften. Better in 2017. Delicious Angludet." (2/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another truly exceptional wine from the Sichel family, the 2012 d’Angludet has a deep ruby/purple color, a sweet floral, blueberry and blackcurrant-scented nose with a touch of licorice, light tannins, low acidity and a nice, fleshy mouthfeel.

Try this in 2018." (2/2012) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "90-92 Barrel sample. Ripely juicy, a wine that feels fresh as much as rich. It shows extreme berry juice as well as acidity. But there is also some density." (8/2010) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Plump and forward, with a tasty core of dark plum, fig sauce and blackberry preserves rolled together and pushed from behind by apple wood and tobacco notes.

2005 d'Angludet, Margaux

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "This wine raises the question: Where does its Margaux character leave off and its 35% Merlot content take over? It is far too coy to say "somewhere in the middle", yet the seamless fit of fine pieces so integral to good Margaux wines and the sweet cherry fruit that lies at the heart of this attractive bottling have clearly produced a wine that is both rich and even slightly succulent." (3/2008) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage, this well-known, non-classified growth is a deep ruby/purple-colored effort revealing notions of roasted meats, black truffles, licorice, ...Read More »

2014 Labégorce, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Labégorce is round, supple and nicely layered. Smoke, plums, black cherries and French oak meld together in a ripe, racy Margaux built on textured fruit. Sweet floral notes add lift on the layered, sensual finish. This voluptuous Margaux should drink well pretty much upon release. There is a lot to like, that much is clear. The blend is 58% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. Michel Rolland is the Consultant for Labégorce, which is owned by the Perrodo family.

Juicy and delicious. Best after 2011." (3/2008) Jancis Robinson: "Aromatic, curious notes, even some of curry spice!..." (4/2006) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cedar, fruitcake, red and black currants interwoven with a touch of spice...Enjoy it over the next 10-12 years."

2014 Siran, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Siran 2014 has perhaps the most sophisticated bouquet that I have encountered at this stage from this upcoming estate. There is real definition and focus here, more precision than recent vintages have shown. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannin. There is good acidity, energetic and animated in the mouth with a vivacious finish that has class. This is very promising for the future and it may warrant a higher score in bottle. Hopefully proprietor Edouard Miailhe now has the grand Margaux estate on the right tracks after years of inco ...Read More »

Very solid. (Web-2015)" 93-94 points James Suckling: "Very sexy and refined with blackberries and blueberries. Full-bodied with ultra-fine and integrated tannins." (3/2015) 91-94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Malescot Saint Exupéry is deep, fleshy and very nicely textured in the glass. Smoke, tobacco, incense and new leather lead to a host of dark red/black-fleshed fruits in a supple, deeply expressive Margaux. Layers of fruit continue to build throug ...Read More »

It has a dark core of firm tannins, although the aftertaste maintains the juiciness." (4/2013) 92 points James Suckling: "A red with mineral, oyster-shell and currant character. Full body, chewy tannins and a long and muscular finish. Needs two or three years to soften. A racy 2012." (2/2015) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It is hard not to give kudos to proprietor Henri Lurton, as he’s done such a great job at this famous estate in Margaux.

(4/2013) 93 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* This red offers beguiling aromas of bergamot, roasted sandalwood and black tea, before giving way to a well-endowed core of plum, blackberry and raspberry reduction notes. The structure is remarkably fine-grained, showing seamless integration through the long finish. A really great showing. Best from 2017 through 2025."

The potential is all there—the sweet fruit of the vintage along with a solid texture and final acidity."

Medium-bodied, with delicate, beautifully ripe, black currant and floral aromas that compete with subtle new oak, the 1995 Malescot hits the palate with a lovely concoction of fruit, nicely integrated tannin and acidity, and a stylish, graceful feel.

Better in 2018." (2/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another great wine in this vintage, the 2012 Malescot offers up tremendous level of black fruits, charcoal and intense, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, sensational purity, low acidity and ripe tannins. It is full-bodied, stunning, multidimensional, and a compelling example of this vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030+.

While opulent, underneath the full-bodied richness of fruit and depth is a structured wine. As it sits in the glass, an espresso roast character (no doubt from new oak) also emerges. Enjoy this pure, structured, fleshy beauty between 2010-2025. (RP)" (6/2007) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright ruby. Wild aromas a ...Read More »

1996 Labegorce, Margaux

Wine Spectator: "Not a big-boned wine, but delicious nonetheless. Attractive blackberry, cherry and earth aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a pretty fruity aftertaste. Best after 2000. –JS" (1/1999) K&L Notes: A great cabernet vintage and a fine value. $40 for the 1996 and $50 for the 2005. This is a no-brainer. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Wine Merchants)

2005 Palmer, Margaux Top Pick!
2005 Palmer, Margaux

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This spectacular offering should continue to improve, and may merit an even higher score after additional aging. Stunningly rich and powerful, the dark purple-tinged 2005 Palmer is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot. Aromas of incense, burning embers, black currants, plums, licorice, and flowers are followed by a full-bodied Margaux with more weight and power even than its nearby first-growth rival, Chateau Margaux. The abundant acidity and tannins are beautifully coated by the wine’s exceptional fruit extract and overall ...Read More »

2014 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Powerful tannins and ripe fruit notes set this wine up for a rich future. It has a dark, brooding quality, with smooth wood flavors and a creamy black-cherry aftertaste." (3/2015) 91-94 points Vinous: "A wine of total finesse, the 2014 Prieuré-Lichine boasts striking purity in its fruit. The flavors are bright and floral throughout, with plenty of red currant, cherry and raspberry. There is virtually no sensation of tannin. Although perhaps not super-complex, the 2014 is impeccably balanced and harmonious from the very first taste. I imagine the 2014 will drink w ...Read More »

1982 Margaux, Margaux (high shoulder, corroded capsule)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Consistently scoring between 98-100, the superb 1982 Margaux may be slightly bigger, bolder, and more masculine than vintages produced over the last 15-20 years. Its dark plum/purple color is followed by notes of melted tar intermixed with sweet cassis and floral underpinnings. Very full-bodied and dense for a Chateau Margaux, with a slight rusticity to the tannins, it boasts blockbuster power, richness, and impressive aromatics. It appears set for another 30-40 years of life. (RP)" (6/2009) 97 points James Suckling: "What a youthful ruby color. And it's fresh and young on the nose ...Read More »

2004 Palmer, Margaux

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fairly deep color. Gorgeous smoky, floral nose is flamboyant and seductive. It’s bright, intense, with rich cherry fruit, mint, and tobacco. The wonderful fruit character on the nose returns in the mouth; it’s soft and velvety, drinking beautifully right now! The 2004 is not one of the more complex Palmers, more floral and delicate than powerful, but everyone loved it. The terrific performance of the 2004 was easily the biggest surprise of the entire tasting." (5/2011) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "** Editors' Choice ** This wine hits the opulent end of the spectrum, with its dense, ...Read More »

1989 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "At first disjointed and a bit diffuse, the 1989 Rauzan-Segla has turned itself around in bottle and is now an outstanding effort. The very forward nose of black fruits intermixed with Provencal herbs, underbrush, licorice, and new oak is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with a roasted ripeness, silky tannins, and a long, lusty finish. (RP)" (1/2003)

2010 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux

98 points James Suckling: "Beautiful clarity of fruit with raspberries and currants on the nose. Roses and other flowers too. It's almost hard to describe, but there's a real purity. Full body, with fabulous balance and depth. It has everything in the right place. Best ever? Try it in 2018." (2/2013) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of the top Margaux wines, this is in top form, finely balanced and as elegant as it is powerful. It is darkly structured, dense yet balancing tannins with ripe black plums. It expresses the complexity of the vintage. A wine for serious, long-term aging." (2/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "To reiterate, the 201 ...Read More »
