80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
Don’t let the price on this Bordeaux fool you—Camille de Labrie is a critical darling from one of Bordeaux’s top families. From Pierre Courdurié, who creates what Robert Parker once described as the “quintessential St. Émilion garagiste wine”.
Deep ruby in appearance, with flashes of purple around the rim. Powerful aromas of aged leather, dried pipe-tobacco, barnyard, toasted sage, stewed sour cherry, and fully ripe strawberry. On the palate, a robust full body is balanced nicely by big, ripe tannins and plentiful acidity, along with profound notes of cinnamon, cloves, blackcurrants, ginger cookies, black-plum compote, and caramelized black cherries. A long, pleasant, savory finish. Pair with a French onion soup, roast chicken, or lamb with plenty of rosemary and mint.
