Rare and unique, the wines of Chateau Croix de Labrie are rich, dense, and very fruity with perfect ripeness. Featuring an elegant deep color with great delicacy, the wines in their youth express freshness, power and balance.
"Always one of the sexiest wines from Bordeaux, and probably best drunk in its first decade of life, this hedonistic fruit-bomb offers up oodles of jammy black cherry and black currant fruit interwoven with some floral notes, subtle oak, lead pencil shavings and a bit of toast. Voluptuous, full-bodied and silky smooth, with no aggressiveness, the tannins seem to melt on the palate, while the finish is long, supple and extravagant. Drink it over the next decade."
The Wine Advocate
"Wonderful complex nose with roasted hazelnuts, cocoa powder, coffee and strawberries. Great intensity and body on the palate with vibrant focused fruit. Layered texture and ripe and chewy tannins. Wonderful wine from a excellent terroir. Needs time to soften. "
