Chateau Labegorce Zede Margaux Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot Bordeaux Margaux 2006

Member Review by zufrieden:

This Margaux has a nice scent of candied cherry and plum with a touch of cedar as well. On the palate, there is some fruit density but less than in exceptional years... with good tannin, however, indicating structure. Can be held for 3-5 more years if desired. 88 points.

Château Labégorce-Zédé:

This part of the property, where the original chateau was located, situated on gravelly land on Margaux's highest knolls, was surrounded by the most famous vineyards of this village. The wines of L'Abbé Gorsse Pérès, like those of Labégorce Rooryck, were the leading crus bourgeois supérieurs of Margaux and the first time they were exhibited, in 1905 in Liege, they won both a Gold Medal and a Grand Prize. Château Margaux bought the vineyard back and, in 2002, Hubert Perrodo acquired the 17th century building. Labégorce is the heart of the estate: in the centre of the property stands an elegant, Restoration-era, neo-classical mansion, the work of the architect Corcelles (1765-1843). When it was built, the owner was Elisabeth Weltener, the widow of Jean Marcellin Bernard. It later passed in to the hands of Mr Capelle in 1832. Mr Fortuné Beaucourt then also acquired it in 1865. The vineyard continued to be lovingly tended and its wine earned a well-deserved reputation for being of the highest quality, with an exquisite taste and distinguished bouquet. The new owner of the estate, who was of strong character, was twice Mayor of Margaux. He kept a close watch on the village's interests. He undertook a great deal of renovation work on the chateau, managed by the architect Georges Minvielle (1867-1893). The estate was sold to the Rooryck family in 1918, then to the Condom family in 1965, before finally Hubert Perrodo bought it in 1989. Read less

Dark color - closed nose of black cherries. Simple on the palate with dark fruit, spice and some wood. Very drying. Ok finish.

Pretty plummy. Currant aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a long persistent finish. Structured. Very well done from this estate. Barrel Tasted Score range: 89-91 -JS This blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot is a soft, round, medium to full-bodied wine with lots of earthy black cherry and black currant fruit as well as some background oak and earth undertones. The wine has pleasant, soft tannins and is ideal for drinking over the next 7-8 years.
