[SOLD-OUT] Chapelle de Labrie St Emilion Grand Cru 2016

JAMES SUCKLING 95 POINTS! 

"The tiny plots of Château Croix de Labrie total an area of 3.5 hectares (8.7 acres) in the middle of the Saint-Émilion Grand Cru appellation area. Rational cultivation techniques are applied in tending the vines, whose fruit produces three great wines.

Chapelle de Labrie is made from fruit from the plots in Saint-Sulpice-de-Faleyrens, next to Château Valandraud’s first plot, where the Cabernet Franc mingles with the dominant Merlot."Airoldi

"This is very fine-grained with such beauty and finesse. It seduces you with its polished and lovely fruit. Medium body. Wonderful length. Better after 2023, but already a joy to taste." - James Suckling

"The 2016 Chapelle de Labrie has a generous, pure bouquet of lush red cherry and strawberry fruit, though unlike some of its peers, there is focus and impressive delineation here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, a smooth texture and a lightly spices, quite persistent, truffle-tinged finish. Excellent." Wine Advocate
