About Chateau Labegorce 2015 Margaux

Bordering chateaux Margaux and Lascombes, this estate with 170 acres of vines is mentioned in the 1868 edition of Cocks and Feret (“Bordeaux and its Wines”), which tells us of the existence since 1332 of “a vineyard belonging to the noble La Bégorce family”. The chateau is described as “... one of the most beautiful and best situated in the town of Margaux”.

The Perrodo family acquired Labégorce in 1989 and renovated not only the chateau building, but also the vineyards, improving the winemaking immeasurably.

This wine from the outstanding 2015 vintage is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 4% Petit-Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, aged in one third new oak for 15 months.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 95 points saying "There is a tough, tannic core to this otherwise ripe and fruity wine. All to the good, as this will allow the bold, ripe wine to age well. Black-currant fruits are already showing their hand and will intensify, bringing in richness and a dense texture. Drink this wine from 2025.,

Jeb Dunnuck scored it 94 points saying "A blockbuster from Margaux is the 2015 Château Labégorce and I was blown away by this beauty. To reiterate, the southern Médoc, and Margaux in particular, is the sweet spot in 2015. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, with close to half the blend brought up in new barrels, its deep purple color flows to a beautiful bouquet of black cherries, blueberries, spice, and violets. With medium to full-bodied richness, a plump, layered, pure texture, ripe tannin, and impressive length, it’s a standout for sure. Give bottles a few years and enjoy over the following 15+."

The wine Advocate scored it 93 points saying "The 2015 Labegorce is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc matured in 45% new and 55% one-year-old barrels. Deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of red and black cherries, black plums and cassis with touches of charcuterie and tapenade, the medium-bodied palate offers great concentration with a firm frame of grainy tannins, finishing long and savory."
