Originally one large estate, which was divided into three after the French revolution (Chateau Labegorce, Labegorce Zede and L’Abbe Grosse) and finally reunited by late owner Hubert Perrodo.
Aged for an average of 15 months in 50% new French oak barrels. Average production 12,000 cases. Deep red cherry, cassis and blackcurrant aromas alongside mineral notes. Full bodied with soft tannins and a dry finish.
Rich and smooth, this is a concentrated wine that has attractive fruitiness as well as firm tannins. The fruitiness is contagious and already enjoyable, surrounding the dense, dry core. It should age well over the medium term, so drink from 2016- 91 pts The Wine Enthusiast
