The 2015 Labégorce is dark, plummy and juicy, with lovely textural richness and intensity. This is a decidedly modern style of Margaux, with all the elements in the right place. Today, the new oak (45%) is a bit pronounced, but the wine appears to have the stuffing to support it. The high percentage of Merlot gives an extra degree of sumptuousness that is emphasized in this vintage. Raspberry jam, mint, cinnamon and wild flowers wrap around the succulent finish. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Tasted two times. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Labegorce is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot that was picked between 15 September and 20 October. Cropped at 38 hl/ha and matured in 45% new oak, it has a sumptuous bouquet with macerated black cherries, wild strawberry and a touch of fresh prune. The palate is well balanced and much more reserved than the aromatics: crisp and firm tannin, nicely focused with a pleasing salinity on the structured finish that suggest that this Labegorce will reward long-term ageing.

Wonderful purity of fruit here with blackberry, black currant and floral aromas and flavors. Full body. Fine tannins. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

Ripe plum and blackberry compote flavors are very direct, framed by a well-singed cedary edge. This has solid fruit, but it's a bit shy on refinement. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Not much on the nose but very sweet on the palate. An attempt at flattery? Pretty drying tannins on the end. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2033

Big broad fruit and lots of structure and depth. Quite a chunky Labégorce with a good future. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2021-2032

This is one of the bigger, richer Margaux wines in 2015, with plenty of tannic backbone and fruit concentration. But it’s certainly not without the charm of appellation, with vibrant acidity and harmonious red and black fruits. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2022-2032
