2000 Labégorce, Margaux
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.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Red-ruby. Sappy, fruit-driven aromas of cherry and raspberry. Sweet, supple and rather easygoing; suggests gentle extraction. Offers good intensity and should give early pleasure. Finishes with smooth tannins and very good length.
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.
Beautiful aromas of spices, berries and plums. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a clean finish. Best after 2005.
Very focused and quite mineral on the palate. Good fruit and it could stand decanting an hour or so. Direct from the property. This wine is just great old school claret. Has great mid palate depth and richness. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Wine Merchants)
