2016 Les Hauts de Croix de Labrie Saint Emilion Grand Cru (750ml)
This is a killer opportunity to access delicious Bordeaux from Saint Emilion without breaking the bank. The Les Hauts de Croix de Labrie is a true garagiste wine in every sense of the word (small production but high quality). We tasted the wine yesterday and we were very impressed with the structure and flavor this beauty provides for the modest price. At $29.99 per, it warrants at least a 6-pack as these will be a go to wine for weeknight dinners and casual entertainment...
"There’s a subtle and friendly nature that I always like in this wine. Hints of hazelnuts, chocolate and berries. Medium to full body, fine and polished tannins and a beautiful finish. A blend of 80 per cent merlot and 20 per cent cabernet franc. Hard not to drink now, but wait until after 2022." 94 points James Suckling
