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. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at Vintex. The Labegorce ’09 has a succulent bouquet with macerated black cherries, blueberry and a touch of violets. Moderate definition, perhaps just a little smudged. The palate has a citric entry, good acidity here cutting through those dense black, tarry fruit, leading to a delineated but strictly linear, tobacco tinged finish. Tasted March 2010

Mineral and currant, with fresh herbs on the nose. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a pretty balance of wood. A little tight, as it should be, but shows potential already

The first vintage when the two Château Labégorces were reunited. A little paler crimson than some. Solid, slightly dusty nose. Medium impact aromatically but lovely and polished and supple on the palate. The tannins are extremely fine. This may not last as long as some but should be a charmer.Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Deep red, good floral red fruits, good, quite earthy vigour with good lifted acidity, good balance and weight. Drink 2014-20.
