Château Croix de Labrie vines grow on some of the finest Saint-Emilion terroirs with plots located at Badon, below the Pavie hillside and on the heights of Saint-Christophe des Bardes. At Badon the soils are made up of sand and clay with traces of iron oxide and a clayey limestone subsoil. These soils drain well, which produces elegance in the wine. The terroir in Saint Christophe-des-Bardes consists of asteriated clayey limestone, which contributes complexity and density to the wines. The distinctive, unique wines of Château Croix de Labrie are rich, dense and very fruity, being made from perfectly ripe grapes. They have deep, elegant, very subtle robes and when young, they are fresh, big and wellbalanced. They have the potential to be laid down for more than 15 years.

Notes : Blackberries, crushed stones and violets on the nose. Complex and exotic. Full body. Velvety and lightly chewy texture. Deep, dark fruit and a flavorful and intense finish. Great result for a hand-crafted wine. Wow. This is better than the 2016. From biodynamically grown grapes. Better in 2021. JS 96pts
