Château Croix de Labrie 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is aromatic, slightly intense and offers a beautiful precision, complexity and a beautiful gourmandize. It reveals notes of cassis and small notes of wild small fruits, ripe red berries, blackberries associated with fine touches of cocoa, subtle touches of sweet spices, vanilla as well as a subtle hint of nutmeg, cuben pepper, toasted / caramelized oak, discreet hints of wood and a very discreet hint of hazelnut. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, silky, gourmande, slightly tight and offers fat, a very fine unctuosity, purity, a precise fruit, a beautiful finesse of the grain, harmony, vivacity, a fine tension, a good structure as well as a beautiful freshness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, crunchy / juicy cassis and slight notes of cocoa, toasted oak combined with a very fine hint of ripe / crunchy blueberry, coffee as well as a subtle hint of zan, a very discreet hint of almond (in the background) and an imperceptible hints of sweet spices. Tannins are fine and structuring. Beautiful harmony and persistence!
