2016 Croix de Labrie, St-Emilion

SKU #1466127 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This shows so much violet and dark-berry character on the nose. So enticing. Full-bodied with chewy and polished tannins, blackberries and eucalyptus and a light, menthol note to finish. A rich yet touching wine. Try after 2023. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Croix de Labrie offers scents of wild blueberries, Black Forest cake and kirsch with touches of garrigue and tilled soil plus a waft of stewed tea. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and with a firm frame of grainy tannins, it has a lovely line of freshness taking the opulent fruit to a long finish. 92+(LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Croix de Labrie has a lovely, pure, generous bouquet of black cherries, cassis and light violet aromas that maintain admirable control and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, good structure and a superb line of acidity. This is one of the best wines I have tasted from Croix de Labrie. Excellent. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)
