Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot
Really expressive, with a gorgeous beam of raspberry, blackberry and blueberry fruit driving through, inlaid with graphite and anise notes. The very polished feel lets the fruit glisten on the finish.
- Wine Spectator, 95 pts.
There are notions of some serious wood aging here, which are happily sustained by the black currant flavor and lively acidity. It will be a firm wine for many years before it opens up.
- Wine Enthusiast, 95 pts.
This is a plump and rich Labégorce with a full body, juicy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Lots of pure and intense fruit.
