    Critical Acclaim:

    This has dark fruit, but comes off as sleek, with cassis, plum eau de vie, blackberry paste and fig sauce notes all seamlessly held together by light toasty structure. Drink now through 2019. 14,000 cases made.

    Showing vastly superior from bottle than it did from cask, Labegorce’s 2009 comes from a property that now includes the former estate Labegorce-Zede, which has been absorbed completely into this attractive vineyard just to the north of Chateau Margaux. They have excelled in this vintage. Dense ruby/purple, with notes of creosote, spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit, this is a rich, medium to full-bodied wine with loads of character and depth. It is usually one of the better values of Bordeaux and it certainly stands out as a major sleeper of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025.

    Dark ruby-red. Aromatic nose shows very ripe raspberry and red cherry scents complicated by mint and bay leaf. Fresh and clean, with juicy red fruit flavors of moderate intensity. Though initially suave and light on its feet, offering attractive sweetness and good overall balance, this finishes with slightly astringent tannins. Not the last word in complexity or aging potential, but a successful wine that should offer considerable early drinking appeal. Incidentally, Chateau Labegorce-Zede, under the same ownership as Labegorce, has now been fused with the latter property. There is now a new second wine called Zede de Labegorce.
