Wine Advocate 90-91/100

The 2021 Labégorce is attractive, offering up a perfumed bouquet of cherries, raspberries, orange rind, cedary spices and smoke, followed by a medium-bodied, fleshy palate with a pretty core of fruit, supple tannins and lively acids. William Kelley

Vinous 91-93/100

The 2021 Labégorce was picked from 23 September to 19 October and matured in 35% new oak, the malo done in bottle. Pretty red cherries, raspberry and bergamot scents on the nose. Light undergrowth aromas surface with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, modest depth, light and focused towards the finish. A well-made Margaux that should give 15-20 years pleasure. Neal Martin

Decanter 91/100

The nose here - so expressive - the aromas of pink flowers, a sour cherry, red cherry sweet nuance, some oak touches - sweet caramel, vanilla, cedar. Tannins quite noticeable, the fruit has high acidity with the focus on on the black cherry, blueberry, pomegranate and plum tone with some salinity and minerality coming through in the graphite and wet stone texture. It's a little dry, the tannins quite severe, but there is an underlying flavour of sweet fruit and this finishes long with freshness. Lovely aromatic complexity with a enjoyable light and bouncy texture, not massively structured but it has charm and real drinkability. 4% Cabernet Franc completes the blend. 3.75pH. Georgie Hindle

James Suckling 92-93

A tight, compact Labégorce with blackcurrant, walnut and some graphite. It’s medium-to full-bodied with a solid core of tannins and fruit. Some lead pencil. Very structured for this estate.
