2005 Labegorce, Margaux

SKU #1038747 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark New wood, sweet fruit, blackberry and plum skin flavors are all here in this round, ripe wine, with its soft, dusty tannins and delicious fresh acidity. This property has certainly joined the big league in Margaux. Inner quote mark (6/2008)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted single blind at Southwold. The ’05 Labegorce is adorned with a ripe, well defined nose, quite delicate with blackberry, plum and boysenberry - elegant and feminine. The palate has a soft ripe entry, rounded and supple in texture although not inherently a complex Margaux, but well crafted. The finish has a nice poise but it is still backward, so give this ‘coquettish’ wine time to mature. Drink 2013-2025. Tasted January 2009. (NM, Wine Journal) Inner quote mark (7/2009)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Firm, with blackberry, cedar and sweet tobacco character. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a long, slightly chewy finish. Best after 2012. Inner quote mark (3/2008)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good medium-deep red. Sexy aromas of redcurrant, minerals, tobacco, coffee and cedary oak. Sweet and opulent, with inviting coffee and mocha tones carrying through on the palate. Finishes with sweet tannins and good mellow length. This shut down in the glass, suggesting that it will need at least several years of aging. Inner quote mark (6/2008)
