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)

Outer quote mark At 16 years of age, the 2005 Labégorce shows just a little bricking on the rim. The nose offers smudged red berry fruit, incense, iris flower and peony, actually gaining delineation with time. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins. There's an almost equal measure of red and black fruit, with a fine grip and a fleshy, sensual and opulent finish. I have always enjoyed this Labégorce, and it continues to drink extremely well. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2022)

Wow—what a great Margaux from a property that flies under the radar. We just received a shipment of this beauty, and it is showing extremely well. Pure Margaux in its silky, feminine style. Many 2005s now are still showing tannin on the finish, but this wine is full of ripe red berry fruits, soft and elegant on the palate with a very smooth, long finish. Very round tannins—a perfect wine to drink at 18 years old. I will surely buy a case for the cellar and enjoy it over the next 5 years. Great terroir makes for great wines and this property, being located a stone's throw from Chateau Margaux, certainly has the terroir. Drank it with short ribs last night and it was a perfect match. Like the Wine Enthusiast says—Labegorce is certainly up there with the top Margaux properties.
