2016 Labégorce, Margaux 12-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1303664 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very elegant and polished Margaux with great structure and an attractive touch of herbal freshness, then a delicate touch of sweetness at the long, fine finish. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Labégorce comes from a property that has really been getting its act together in recent years. It has a gorgeous, very pure blackberry, raspberry and pressed violet bouquet, almost understated, but there is real focus here. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin and quite Pauillac-like in style, and there is impressive density on the finish. Wonderful. Look out for this. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This estate on the north side of the village of Margaux is performing at its peak. As befits the vintage it’s a rich wine with big tannins. But it also has the style that characterizes a Margaux, with a smooth, perfumed aftertaste. Drink from 2025. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Deep, rich extraction, black cherry in colour with very well controlled aromatics of damson and creamy cappuccino. This is a gorgeous wine and there are going to be many many fans of the contemporary but utterly controlled and well judged flavours on display here. Luscious and big, but everything has a reason for being where it is, nothing superfluous. One of the best ever from this property. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Labégorce is composed of 52% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, aged in 45% new and 55% one-year-old French oak barrels. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps out of the glass with gregarious cassis, kirsch and black raspberries, candied violets, dark chocolate and spearmint. Medium-bodied, elegant, fresh and with exciting intensity, it delivers a fantastically long, fragrant finish. (LPB) 93+ Inner quote mark (11/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Features a core of freshly crushed plum and blackberry fruit, inlaid with singed mesquite, sandalwood and black tea notes. This is on the toasty side in the end, but the texture has a plush edge and there's enough fruit for balance. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

K&L Notes

90 points Antonio Galloni for Vinous: "The 2016 Labégorce is a dense, potent wine. There is plenty of depth to the copious blackberry jam, plum and chocolate flavors. Rich and forward, the 2016 will drink well with minimal cellaring." (01/2019)

We were fortunate to taste the 2016 Labegorce three times during our En Primeur trip, and the single adjective that stood out from each of my tasting notes was - “WOW!” It’s hard NOT to fall in love with this wine and the team at Chateau Labegorce. Tremendous passion, proficiency and enthusiasm translate to a wine that will not disappoint. Notes of Asian spice, flowers, bay, cedar and minerals leap from the glass, leading to supple and sweet palate impression. This wine displays great follow through, given its perfect balance of fine tannin and fresh acidity. Incredibly complex for the price, the 2016 Labegorce is sure to please.

A perfect score from me considering the low price. One of my top 5 from the Margaux region and that says a lot with the neighborhood that includes Palmer and Margaux. We had this wine three times and it was off the charts good every time. 52% Merlot which is high for the property. Such an intense nose of Asian spice and black cherry. Violets on the palate. Very feminine style-so precise. SO DELICIOUS. A must buy-it will sell out quickly. As good as it gets for any wine from anywhere for this price.
Drink from 2020 to 2040
