Robert Parker 91-93+
The Chateau Labegorce 2014 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot and matured in 50% new oak. The nose is well defined and focused, tensile blackberry and boysenberry fruit embroidered with fine mineralite. Good start! The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, saturated black cherry and raspberry fruit with a gentle, silky finish that just needs a little more backbone. That is a minor quibble for what could be an excellent wine from this fast-improving Margaux estate. Don't be surprised if it merits a higher score in bottle.

Open, with a caressing feel to the mix of violet, plum and anise notes. Twinges of licorice snap and bay show on the finish, but this stays relatively graceful overall. A pretty display of fruit.
