2020 Château Labegorce has been released for sale this afternoon En Primeur at £235 per dozen bottles in bond. As Lisa Perotti-Brown comments, 2020 is an 'enigmatic' vintage in which some wines have performed even better than in 2018 and 2019, whilst others have underperformed. In Margaux, at least some of this variability can be attributed to low rainfall during July. Estates with more clay terroirs did well (as it retains more water) and Labegorce was one of these.
Jane Anson describes it as "Less opulent than 2019, more classic and serious but this is great (93 points)" whilst Jeb Dunnuck enthuses about its "Rock star crème de cassis, graphite, roasted herbs, iron, and loamy earth nuances " and "wonderful purity of fruit", describing it as "terrific value" (93-95 points).
Landing in spring 2023.
