2017 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1357570 92-93 points James Suckling

 A juicy and rich red with lots of fruit and wet-earth character. Medium to full body, ripe tannins and a fresh finish.  (4/2018)

91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2017 Château Labégorce checks in as 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot (which is slightly more than normal), 8% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, aging in 45% new French oak. Its vibrant purple color is followed by a beautiful bouquet of crème de cassis, crushed flowers, classy oak, and graphite. With medium to full-bodied richness, an awesome texture, and ripe tannin, it’s up with the top wines from the appellation. Tasted twice. This is an estate readers need to have on their radar.  (4/2018)

90-93 points Wine Spectator

 Fresh and lively, with red and black currant fruit gilded with lilac and sandalwood notes. A fresh mineral edge shows on the finish. Nicely rendered. (JM)  (4/2018)

92 points Decanter

 An excellent Labegorce, full of rich black fruits, textured and layered. A great success in the vintage, with a mouthwatering delivery that holds itself with confidence. It's not hugely intense, as is often the case this year, but makes up for it with a poised delivery and firm, juicy tannins. (JA)  (4/2018)

92 points Vinous

 The 2017 Labégorce is aged for 14 months in 45% new oak. This has an attractive bouquet with brambly red berry fruit, cedar and subtle dark chocolates scents. It is clean and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, not the most powerful Margaux in this vintage, a little dusty on the finish but still, quite a stylish Labégorce that deserves some bottle age.

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Labégorce gives pronounced black fruits, blackberries and black plums with suggestions of underbrush, lavender and bay leaves. The palate is medium-bodied, ripe, plump, juicy and expressive with plush tannins and good length. The current blend is 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. (LPB)  (4/2018)

Jancis Robinson

 Dark crimson. Rather racy and juicy on the nose. A bit fatter and chunkier than the average Margaux but a very good effort for the vintage. Some sweetness and polish even if it’s not the most classic Margaux. 16+/20  (10/2019)

The 2016 was one of the best-if not the best under $30 Bordeaux. This 2017 follows closely behind it and it is priced reasonably. 30% lower production than normal. 61% Cabernet is the backbone here. Intense red berry aromas that follow to the palate. The wine is soft and elegant-very feminine style and I love it. A great value 2017 for sure.
Drink from 2025 to 2035
