Chateau Croix de Labrie 2008
|Marke||Chateau Croix de Labrie|
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Bordeaux Blend|
This gorgeous, sexy, opaque plum/purple-hued 2008 exhibits notes of mocha, blackberries, black raspberries, chocolate and barbecue smoke. Thick, unctuously textured and juicy, it is a flamboyantly styled effort meant to be consumed in its first 10-12 years of life. Don’t miss it!
Winespectator / James Suckling (89)
This is very solid, featuring a core of mulled raspberry and fig fruit woven with alluring black tea and warm fruitcake notes. Stays fresh and lively on the finish. Merlot.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
