Labegorce 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"A dark, plummy, richly fruited style, with black currant, warm fig sauce and dark currant character wrapped with lush dark cocoa and espresso notes, followed by a big, toasty finish. Shows more width than length right now, but there's plenty of stuffing. Should stretch out more. ...90-93 (BT)" WS Web Only 2011 "This is the debut vintage for consultant Claude Gros and the quality is the finest I have ever tasted from this estate. (Beginning in 2009, the neighboring estate of Labegorce Zede was incorporated into Labegorce.) Made from a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that hit 14% natural alcohol, this sleeper of the vintage reveals a dense purple color in addition to abundant notes of charcoal, spring flowers, black currants and subtle smoky barrique in the background. Medium to full-bodied and ripe with sweet tannin, this beauty should drink nicely for a decade or more...88-90" WA 05/11
