I loved the 2018 Château Croix de Labrie, another terrific wine from winemaker Axelle Courdurié. Based on 90% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, brought up in new oak, its deep purple color is followed by ripe, powerful notes of cassis, spice box, toasty oak, and earth. It has a great mid-palate, ripe, polished tannins, and a great finish, all making for a brilliant looking Saint-Émilion.
