Château Labégorce-Zédé Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2005
External Reviews for Château Labégorce-Zédé Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux
Located in Soussans, Labegorce Zede is planted with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. It is aged in 40-50% new oak. This lesser known chateau (at least to American consumers), one of the nine crus bourgeois exceptionnels, has a solid track record and deserves the attention of Bordeaux drinkers. The '05 has a soft, fresh, clean nose with ample fruit in reserve along with well-judged oak. It is medium weight, long and expressive, with the structure to permit a decade or more of cellaring. Highly recommended and a very good value. Robert Parker 87-89, Wine Spectator 89-91.
