1978 Château Labégorce-Zédé
Scores: 90+ CT:91 AVG: 91
1978 was saved by a much-needed perfect autumn. As you might expect from left bank Bordeaux, this is dominantly Cabernet Sauvignon. At the time of production, the estate was owned by Jean Battesti who arrived in 1961 and invested heavily in both the cellars and vineyards. Bordeaux wines from this vintage should be drunk now. One bottle has a partially torn label.
