    Neal Martin Notes
    91-93 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2020 Labégorce was picked 16 September to 1 October and raised in 40% new oak, the remainder one year old. It has a perfumed bouquet with brambly red fruit, wild strawberry mixed with raspberry preserve and rose petal, hints of orange rind emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, classic in style with a fine bead of acidity that imparts plenty of freshness. More black fruit on the palate compared to the nose with a saline finish, this is a fine Margaux that has a suppleness suggesting it will drink early after bottling." 05/21
    Antonio Galloni
    91-93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "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." 06/21
    James Suckling Notes
    92-93 Points, James Suckling, jamessuckling.com: “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.” 05/21
    Decanter Notes
    93 Points, Jane Anson, Decanter: “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. Harvest September 16 to October 1.” 4/21

    93-95 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com: "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. It’s going to benefit from 3-5 years of bottle age and drink nicely for 15-20 years. It should be a terrific value as well." 05/21
