Château Labadie Medoc Bottle 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/>Chateau Labadie was classed as a Cru Bourgeois in the 1932 classification and again in the 2003 revision. . The estate lies at the northern tip of the Medoc, around the village of Begadan, and for many years the grapes were sold to the local co-operative. In 1988, however, owners Yves and Adelaide Bibey changed policy and decided to make their own wine. <br/> <br/>The 2006 vintage is intense, inky and smoky with plenty of black fruit and some gentle spice on the nose. The palate shows balanced acidity and supple tannins and more rich, spicy fruit which evokes that on the nose. Blackcurrant and cherry rule the roost with an enticing earthiness on the finish.

Chateau Labadie lies close to the village of Bégadan in the Médoc area. The name comes from a block of vines where there was an abbey a long time ago (the term Labadie meant abbey in old French language). The vineyard is situated between the Gironde river and the Atlantic ocean, so it takes advantage of a particular climate which gives sweetness. The vineyard of this family-run estate is divided into two very distinct parts: clay limestone soils, providing the wine with good structure and gravels, which add finesse and a certain fruitiness.
