From: Bordeaux 2019: The Southwold Tasting (Feb 2023)
The 2019 Labégorce is slightly more savory on the nose compared to its peers, blackberry and cedar, hints of meat juice. Slightly animally, but it is not Brettanomyces. The palate is well-balanced with more substance than its peers. Fresh and saline, gently builds in the mouth towards its sappy and satisfying finish. Very fine. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting.

The 2019 Labégorce has turned out nicely, offering up aromas of smoky berry fruit, cassis, incense and subtle hints of loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and lively, with good depth and ripe, gently chewy tannins, this is a fine effort. Drink 2021-2040.
