96 Points James Suckling
Lots of lush dark cherries, violets, and allspice followed by black ink, mint chocolate, and mocha. Full-bodied and very concentrated in the mid-palate with refreshing acidity and firm yet juicy tannins. A broad and energetic wine that is well-framed with focus. From organically grown grapes. It will age beautifully. Try after 2028.

93 Points Vinous Media
The 2021 Croix de Labrie was picked at 25hL/ha between September 30 and October 16, and matured in 80% new oak. It has quite a perfumed, floral bouquet of violet-tinged red fruit, with a touch of blueberry coming through. The harmonious palate is medium-bodied and silky-smooth, delivering pliant tannins and a persistent finish. This is a very pleasant surprise. A great showing.

Château Croix de Labrie was established in the early 2000s by owner and winemaker, Axelle Courdurié. She acquired the vineyard, which is a small 1.3-hectare plot, with the aim of producing high-quality, artisanal wines that reflect the unique terroir of Saint-Emilion.

located on a hillside with clay and limestone soils, typical of the Saint-Emilion region. The vineyard is planted with Merlot, which is the dominant grape variety in Saint-Emilion, along with some Cabernet Franc, and follows a traditional and artisanal approach to winemaking. The vineyard is managed using sustainable and organic practices, with a focus on minimal intervention in the cellar to allow the terroir to express itself in the wines. The yields are kept low to ensure concentration and quality in the grapes.

The wine is made from hand-harvested grapes and undergoes fermentation in small oak barrels. It is then aged in French oak barrels for a period of time to develop its flavors and complexity.

Despite being a relatively small winery, Château Croix de Labrie has gained recognition for its high-quality wines. The wines have received praise from wine critics for their depth, complexity, and elegance. They are known for their approachability in their youth, as well as their ability to age and improve over time.

Overall, Château Croix de Labrie is a boutique winery that produces limited quantities of high-quality wines from its small vineyard in the esteemed Saint-Emilion appellation. Its commitment to traditional winemaking methods and focus on terroir expression has earned it a reputation as one of the notable producers in the region.
