Croix de Labrie 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is another astonishing effort from this small estate. The 2007 is one of the sexiest, most opulent yet powerfully concentrated wines of the vintage. There is not a hard edge to be found in this voluptuously textured, deep St.-Emilion. Abundant aromas and flavors of chocolate, charcoal, blackberries, and cassis offer a thrill a second. Enjoy this beauty over the next decade...93" WA 04/10 "Bright, deep ruby-red. Deep, spicy aromas of black cherry, bitter chocolate, espresso and leather. Dense and subtly sweet but with a firm spine of acidity giving shape to the flavors of crushed berries, stone, minerals and leather. There's a captivating wildness here that stops just short of rustic. Finishes with firm-edged tannins that avoid coming off as dry...89" IWC 08/10
