Château Labegorce 2003 Margaux

Lots of Sun and lower yield give this wine richness and concentration.  The colour is lively and the nose full bodied.  The palate on the otherhand, reveals itself in a very refined and delicate fashion. New wood, sweet fruit, blackberry and plum flavors are all here in this round, ripe wine, with its soft dusty tannins and delicious fresh acidity. This wine is a fine example of the fantastic wines from the Margaux region. This property has certainly joined the big league in Margaux.  This wine will reach its peak between 2013 and 2015.
