Tasting Note :
Château Croix de Labrie is certainly a “garage winery.” It makes three different wines in the small winery on the outskirts of the town of Saint Christophe des Bardes. This is Burgundy in St.-Emilion, as the three wines all represent specific parcels of the winery’s vineyards, including Croix de Labrie, Chapelle de Labrie and Les Hauts de Croix de Labrie. The wines are distinctively different: the Croix de Labrie shows the most structure of the three, Chapelle de Labrie has the most minerally character, and Les Hauts de Croix de Labrie has the softest, most velvety texture. Everything is done by hand here from tending the vines to topping the barrels.
