Region: Bordeaux, France
Producer: Chateau Croix de Labrie
Grape: 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc
Nice, deep ruby color. Intense and rich, with notes of blackcurrant and red fruits. Voluptuous, full-bodied and silky smooth, with no aggressiveness, the tannins seem to melt on the palate, while the finish is long and delicate, with plenty of finesse.
This is a tiny parcel from vineyards planted in stony and sandy soil. Full and soft and gorgeous. Decadent and velvety texture. Menthol and ripe fruit. — JS 93
