2020 Labégorce, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1539535 93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark I continue to love the wines from this estate in Margaux, and the 2020 Château Labegorce is no exception. Rock star crème de cassis, graphite, roasted herbs, iron, and loamy earth nuances all define the bouquet, and it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a relatively soft, plush, forward style, good mid-palate density, and wonderful purity of fruit. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Smoked cedar oak on the nose, a welcome touch in a vintage where tannins have frequently been turned up to 11. Grilled almonds; really a campfire edge. I like this, works well with the vintage. The fruit softens through the mid palate but the team has done a great job of finding extra layers flavour and complexity. Good stuff. 40% new oak. 2% Petit Verdot completes the blend. Yields around 32hl/ha. Just 20mm of rain in August here, which meant veraison was more difficult. Tasted this also at the estate, and both times I was impressed. Less opulent than 2019, more classic and serious but this is great. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

92-93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A tight, compact Labégorce with blackcurrant, walnut and some graphite. It’s medium-to full-bodied with a solid core of tannins and fruit. Some lead pencil. Very structured for this estate. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2020 Labégorce is a dark, brooding Margaux. Black cherry, gravel, licorice, spice and bittersweet chocolate play off the wine's considerable density and pure power. Labégorce is not exactly subtle, but it sure packs plenty of punch. This is an especially plush style, and it works well. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2021)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium to deep purple-black in color, it slides out of the glass with open-knit scents of redcurrant jelly, kirsch and black raspberries, plus hints of bay leaves and lavender. The medium-bodied palate is refreshing and elegant with plenty of vivacious red berry flavors and a soft texture, finishing with an herbal lift. (LPB) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Modern, ripe fruit on the nose – blackcurrant and blackberry. Airbrushed tannins giving a soft but supple texture, with acidity that freshens the finish. Reasonably nimble on the finish, with persistent fruit and refreshing structure. Very enjoyable. 17+/20 points (RH) Inner quote mark (4/2021)
