"Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London. The nose on the Labegorce 2009 is very precise with sprightly black fruits, crushed stone and a touch of cassis. Nicely composed and surfeit with freshness. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, very pure and silky towards the harmonious finish. This is very fine and showing better than in barrel. Excellent Margaux from this estate. Tasted October 2011."

"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." 

International Wine Cellar 90
"Bright red-ruby. Aromas of roasted plum, currant, blackberry and tar are lifted by a floral topnote and complicated by a whiff of leather. Sweet, silky and densely packed, with impressive thickness of texture leavened by good inner-mouth energy and florality. Fine-grained and very nicely delineated. Finishes long and ripely tannic, with lingering flavors of crushed blackberry, plum, chocolate and minerals. As of this vintage, Labegorce now includes the vines from Labegorce-Zede; new proprietor Hubert Perrodo re-unified these two properties in late 2005, shortly before his death in a skiing accident in late 2006."
