Description

This 2001 exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color along with a lovely perfume of espresso roast, creme de cassis, and toasty oak. Opulent, full-bodied, and fleshy, it is a layered, medium to full-bodied, pure, sexy effort to enjoy between 2006-2014. - WA91

The Winery

Château Croix de Labrie is located in Saint-Emilion Grand Cru which inevitably think of Burgundy and its mosaic of plots and producers. Indeed, our vineyards cover around 5 acres in the heart of the appellation.

We pay particular attention to the vine in order to express the maximum of the terroir. The vineyard is handled by Axelle Courdurié, as a small diamond, from pruning to the harvest, the vinification and ageing with the guidance of the team of Michel Rolland. Very mindful of detail, accuracy Axelle brings her feminine sensitivity to all our wines from Croix de Labrie.

The plots are located on Badon (near Pavie), St. Sulpice (beside the first parcel of Valandraud) and Saint Christophe des Bardes beside our cellar (dating from 1687). The terroir of Badon is composed of sand and clay with a basement limestone. Soil drainage, brings us finesse. The St. Sulpice compound is serious with clays which cause more depth and density. And finally Saint Christophe des Bardes on clay-limestone soil bringing complexity and density. The vines are more than 98 % Merlot, we have a few rows of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon in St Sulpice.
