There's been immense praise from critics for Bordeaux's 2022 vintage, “the quality of the wines is exceptional” wrote James Suckling, “extremely impressive” put Jancis Robinson, and The Drink Business declared “great Margaux typicity and great freshness of these wines”. Although yields were down, Margaux performed well and Château Labégorce is an excellent buy. Unlike many of its neighbours Labégorce wasn’t classified in 1855, meaning that the wines remain today very well priced. With vines on average 30 years old, some over 100, they yield grapes of tremendous concentration, the flavour of which is flattered by ageing in 40% new oak barrels. With rich, warm black fruits, espresso notes and firm rounded tannins, this is a keeper.

"Deep fruit, dark spices and graphite. Polished tannins. Intense with depth and structure. Big wine" James Suckling
