Colour: Deep purple garnet red with ruby and garnet red tints Nose: Elegant and complex with a quintessence of black berries, truffles, mocha and jammy aromas finishing on spicy vanilla notes Palate: Well balanced and rich with smooth tannins. Long finish on plum notes.
Complex, concentrated, great freshness and vibrant fruit. Cassis, leaves, licorice, good structure. The d’Issa holds a long history is probably in the best shape. Cabernet Sauvignon (61%) and Merlot (39%).
The wine opens with espresso, boysenberry and earthy aromas. This leads to a lively, fresh, soft textured, medium bodied Margaux wine. Better than previous vintages, (and the 2010 is even better) with a firm commitment to producing the best wines possible from their terroir, you can expect good things in the future from Labegorce, which fortunately for consumers, remains a well priced Margaux wine.
One of the fabulous surprises.., the 2006 Lafite Rothschild is a great, great wine…Frankly, it may turn out to be as good as the 2005, which in all of Bordeaux is a far greater vintage than 2006. Lafite’s severe selection process resulted in a full-bodied wine boasting an extraordinary perfume of charcoal, truffles, lead pencil shavings, and sensationally sweet, ripe black currant and cedar notes. A wine of extraordinary intensity, texture, and depth with silky tannins as well as awesome concentration, this has turned out to be a remarkable Lafite Rothschild that should be drinkable much earlier than the 2005, but age for three decades.
Wine garnet-red color. Soft and full taste of the wine shows a pleasant acidity and well-balanced silky texture. The aroma of wine combines delicate shades of currants, cherries and plums, gentle tone of sweet spice and leather. Wine is served to the game and poultry, is well suited to red meat and grilled meat, it is recommended in combination with cheese.
