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 : This is a glorious 2020 with such pure fruit of currants and blackberries, as well as dark chocolate. It’s full and layered and opens in the glass to a lovely layer of fine, velvety tannins that are bright and citrusy. Crunchy. It really opens and shows so many layers. Spectacular. Drink after 2027.
