2015 Laubarit Rouge, Bordeaux

SKU #1274881

Organic, in fact Biodynamic wine, with all the bells and whistles. Our first red in from the great 2015 vintage. Soft and elegant and quite forward — drink it over the next few years. Château Laubarit is located in the Haut-Benauge district—in the heart of Entre-Deux-Mers—about 45 km southeast of Bordeaux. The estate has been in the Dumas family since 1780. The current proprietors, Pierre-Abel and Nicole Simmoneau (neé Dumas), took over management of the property from the previous generation in 1965.

Warm blackberry pie with a thick crust rushes out of the glass to greet you and you smile. Strawberry high tones accent the nose as you go in for the first sip and are reminded of the beauty that good Merlot can offer. On the pallet the blackberries start a crescendo of fresh fruit, but the earthy notes of dusty bramble and forest floor bring you back to the sophistication of Bordeaux. The wine finishes clean with good structure and build a mean thirst for a second glass.

Easily my favorite sub-$15 Bordeaux in store. Farmed and vinified both organic and biodynamic. Dark berries, blackberry, currant, and dried herbs on the nose. On the palate, the wine is generous with the dark fruit once more, savory notes, and black pepper. Elevated acidity and mineral flavors really give this medium-bodied wine nice lift. A top value, both as a choice for parties or as a weekday red with dinner

We have a lot of great deals in Bordeaux, and this is no exception. This is a lovely wine for drinking now or in a few years. The 2015 vintage in Bordeaux is considered a potential classic by winemakers and critics alike. With generous dark fruit, great minerality and well-balanced structure, this is a great weeknight wine to open when you want to feel like you're splurging.

We made a lot of friends with this wine last year, it was great to see it again. Organic everyday Bordeaux, what is not to like. Medium-bodied, dry tannins, modest mid-palate richness, with dark red fruits that are dusted with tobacco and earth.

Here is a Cab you need to hail, now more than ever: where else are you going to find a delicious, balanced, certified organic/biodynamic Bordeaux red for the holidays for under eleven bucks? The nose is classic cassis accented with cracked pepper. The wine shows natural, not confected fruit, with hints of licorice-star anise and black pepper, a medium body, and light, dusty tannins. If you like your wines on the drier side, put this up against any similarly priced Bordeaux blend from anywhere else around the globe, and this'll hold its own quite nicely; that is, where it doesn't immediately trounce the competition.

There is wonderful sweetness to the raspberry and baked cherry fruit flavors on this low-priced, delicious and organic wine. This is lively, clean, bone dry and has great mineral lift throughout the mid-palate. The subtle pulverized tannins on the fine finish add length and a food-friendly snap.

A very nice, easy Bordeaux to dress up a dinner, to take to a casual dinner with friends, or to just enjoy on its own. Its fruity nose is very enticing, with raspberry, plums and even a touch of vanilla. The palate is very friendly, with soft tannins. A crowd pleaser.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
