Château Croix de Labrie is located in Saint-Emilion Grand Cru which inevitably think of Burgundy and its mosaic of plots and producers. Indeed, our vineyards cover around 10 acres in the heart of the appellation. We pay particular attention to the vine in order to express the maximum of the terroir. The vineyard is handled by Axelle Courdurié, as a small diamond, from pruning to the harvest, the vinification and ageing with the guidance of the team of Michel Rolland and Hubert de Bouard. Very mindful of detail, accuracy Axelle brings her feminine sensitivity to all our wines from Croix de Labrie. The plots are located on Badon (near Pavie), St. Sulpice (beside the first parcel of Valandraud) and Saint Christophe des Bardes, on the famous plateau with arteries limestones, beside our cellar (dating from 1687). The terroir of Badon is composed of sand and clay with a basement limestone. Soil drainage, brings us finesse. The St. Sulpice compound is serious with clays which cause more depth and density. And finally, the plateau, Saint Christophe des Bardes on clay-arteries limestone soil bringing complexity and density. The vines are more than 90 % Merlot, we have a few rows of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Château Croix de Labrie (90 % Merlot 7% Cabernet Sauvignon 3% Cabernet Franc) produces about 850 to 1000 cs. Château Croix de Labrie is part of the Grand Vin de Bordeaux and is now considered as one of the rarest and one of the great wines of Bordeaux and Saint-Emilion with Ausone, Angelus, Cheval Blanc, Canon, La Mondotte, Pavie, Valandraud. Rare and unique wines of Château Croix de Labrie are rich, dense, very fruity, with perfect ripeness. A very elegant very deep color, with lots of finesse.
