Chateau Croix de Labrie Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2015
With apologies to Guy Fieri (and you).....SHUT. THE. FRONT. DOOR.!!!!
Bordeaux! LEGENDARY St. Emilion, made by a true “garagiste” (only 400 cases a year are made!!) and a WHOPPING 96-point rockstar! One of the very smallest and most coveted St. Emilions you can covet --- we are truly blessed/shocked/stoked/amazed to have a handful of cases to offer today at a simply melon-twisting, planet-crushing price! WOW!
Collectors ---- you NEED to be moving at hyperspeed right now. Go go!!
This is one of the sexiest, sauciest St. Emilions we have tasted in many moons. WHAT A PRICE! C’mon!! 2015 is, of course, a THRILLINGLY terrific vintage in Bordeaux, and you will get it right away when you pop the cork on this bad boy. Sultry crème de cassis just defines this wine, but it’s not shy in the succulent toasty oak department either. Roasting coffee beans, blueberry pie, and sweet, ripe tannin make this a HEDONISTIC pleasure for sure….but it will only get better for the next decade!!
Mind-blowing score! While it lasts…!
