Chapelle de Labrie 2018 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Chapelle de Labrie 2018 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity, well-built, elegant and offers a beautiful finesse of the grain, a beautiful complexity as well as a beautiful fruit. A “multi-layer” wine that requires work in the glass to reveal itself. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy cassis and small notes of crushed strawberry associated with touches of crushed blue berries, flowers (cornflower, peony) as well as slight / discreet hints of Cuben pepper and spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, elegant and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful suavity, gourmandise, a good structure, a mineral frame, tension, freshness, a beautiful finesse, a very beautiful finesse of the grain as well as a beautiful touch and texture. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy blackcurrant and small notes of fleshy strawberry / blackberry associated with touches of chocolate, toasted touches as well as discreet hints of caramelisation, a very discreet hint of flowers (in the background) and an imperceptible hint of ripe almond. Tannins are elegant. Good length. There is a very discreet hint of cardamom on the persistence.
