Chateau Labegorce Margaux
Min. Quantity: 1
Chateau Labegorce is located north of the town of Margaux and the vineyards border directly onto Chateau Margaux vineyards. This is why the wines from Chateau Labegorce are often compared to the Margaux Growths, for a much lower investment. Made from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, this is a Bordeaux wine that will really will impress. Pure blackberry, raspberry and violet aromas with grippy tannins and an intense palate showing an abundance of red cherry jam, licorice and French oak. Deep flavours and a long finish, this is a wine to enjoy and treasure. Beautiful with Filet Mignon, mushrooms or Gratin Dauphinoise.
Expert Reviews & Awards
" The Labégorce vineyards include three main plots, totalling 70 hectares in all, although only approximately 40 hectares are fully planted up. All three plots lie in the northernmost part of the commune. The largest plot, accounting for about two-thirds, lies just northeast of the fine chateau, which was constructed by the renowned architect Courcelles. There is a second plot around the chateau itself, accounting for about a quarter of all the Labégorce vines, while the smallest plot lies a little further north around the church in Soussans. The vines average 30 years of age, with the oldest vines, of which there are just four hectares, dating from between 1902 and 1950. More date from 1951 to 1985, whereas a quarter date from 1989 when extensive replanting took place. Vineyard practices involve careful use of chemicals, with no herbicide used at all, and yields are typically 50 hl/ha. Harvesting is by hand, and fermentation begins with a short, cold maceration followed by a temperature controlled process. Each parcel of vines, of which there are many, is vinified separately. The blend is 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Malolactic fermentation takes place in oak, 30% of which is new, where the wine spends up to fifteen months.” thewinedoctor.com.
