Chapelle de Labrie 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Chapelle de Labrie 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is aromatic and offers concentration as well as a beautiful grain. It reveals notes of cassis, dark chocolate and blackberry associated with fine touches of ripe red berries, ripe cherry as well as  fine/discreet touches of spices, subtle hint of zan and a very discreet hint of Ceylan tea. The palate is well-balanced and offers a beautiful freshness, a beautiful acid tram, a fin fat, tension, juiciness, deepness, a very fine density, minerality as well as some crunchy. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy cassis, juicy blackberry and more slightly juicy red berries/redcurrant associated to small touches of minerality, cherry, subtle touches of cocoa, toasted as well as very fine touches of blueberry, liquorice, toasted, minerality, a subtle/imperceptible touches of flowers (in the background) and fine touches of cocoa on the finish. Tannins are fine. The finish is slightly powdered. Good persistence.
