"The 2014 Labégorce is one those "dark horses" of the vintage, a wine that has a prosperous future. It has a lovely, very pure and sensual bouquet with lifted redcurrant and wild strawberry scents that really evoke the essence of Margaux. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well -udged acidity, good concentration with a satisfying raspberry preserve-infused finish that demonstrates superb persistence. I adored this Labégorce from barrel and now in bottle it does nothing to disprove my initial enthusiasm. Top Margaux ahoy!"
Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, March 2017

"The 2014 Labégorce has a crisp well defined bouquet with blackberry and raspberry fruit, cedar and pressed flowers, and hints of pressed rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, fine acidity, harmonious with a mixture of red and black fruit towards the tender finish. I love the texture here. This is a sublime Margaux from a rejuvenated estate. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting."
Neal Martin, February 2018

"The 2014 Labégorce is round, supple and nicely layered. Smoke, plums, black cherries and French oak meld together in a ripe, racy Margaux built on textured fruit. Sweet floral notes add lift on the layered, sensual finish. This voluptuous Margaux should drink well pretty much upon release. There is a lot to like, that much is clear. The blend is 58% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. Michel Rolland is the Consultant for Labégorce, which is owned by the Perrodo family. Here, the winemaking style appears to be better suited to the intrinsic personality of the wine than it is at Marquis d'Alesme - Becker. This is a fabulous wine in its class."
Antonio Galloni, April 2015

"Still feels extremely young at nine years old, with black pepper and turmeric spice, bitter almond, smoked earth and blackberry fruits. Excellent quality, with heart and personality. 50% new oak. Harvest September 19 to October 17, technical director Marjolaine de Coninck. Served out of magnum."
Jane Anson, March 2023
