This year, it is one of the 13 best wines from Saint Emilon! Solid black color. Wide, deep bouquet with enormous fullness, ripened fruit aromas, big sweetness with liqueuric head note in the nose and a fresh, crunchy red berry component, fine scents of wood in it, very intense smell. Widely spread on the palate, with a very natural mouth-feeling and full body, it bursts a deep chocolate-cherry structure, with fine acidity and good tension, as well as polished, long tannins. Long, sweet back aroma with power and meaty richness, very spicy and potent.
Despite its larhe volume and viscous texture, it is light-footed and elegant at the same time. An impressive, deep Croix de Labrie with feminine delicacy and gripping intense fruit driven flavours. This is very nicely done.
Croix de Labrie emerges from a 3. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannin, quite modern in style but with a very attractive silky texture, and retaining sufficient freshness and brightness on the seductive black cherry and kirsch finish. Give it years in ottle, if you can resist. With medium to full-bodied depth and richness on the palate, ripe tannin, and a great id-palate, it needs years of bottle age to integrate its oak and gain complexity, and will keep for upwards of two decades.
There is good depth to the plummy red fruit flavors but the alcohol is slightly out of balance and the contours need more polish. Still, there appears to be good underlying potential. Silky in nature with the structure to evolve, this is a very nice vintage for Croix de Labrie. The mouth is big, rich and voluptuous with some chew to the tannins and plenty of freshness to lift the weighty finish.
Voluptuous, full-bodied and silky smooth, with no aggressiveness, the tannins seem to melt on the palate, while the finish is long, supple and extravagant. Drink it over the next decade. Full and very velvety textured. Great ripe tannins. Very polished and textured. Made from only one hectare. Pure Merlot. Since , this wine has displayed one of the loveliest mouthfeels in Saint-Emilion. Outstanding dark colour and a pure nose of ripe fruit. But the real difference is on the palate, where it combines a smooth taste with a big build, classy texture, gusto and fine tannins.
The whole is elegantly creamy and delicately fragrant with no sharpness.

Sweet and polished with some oak in evidence. Very sweet start and just not over the top. Well bought! This should satisfy many palates for its voluptuousness. Chapeau, Messrs Thunevin and Rolland!
