Big ripe fruit and a generous body are matched by lively acidity and rather elegant tannins in this modern style Medoc that has a long, rather polished finish.
Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the 2015 Labadie has an impressive bouquet of blackberry, bilberry and tobacco scents that gain intensity with aeration. I like the focus and breeding here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine line of acidity, fresh from start to finish with a subtle marine note on the finish. This is a very fine Médoc, clearly the best since 2010. (NM)
The 2015 Château Labadie is a well-made, medium-bodied charmer that gives up plenty of black cherry, leafy herb, and earth-like aromas and flavors. This northern Médoc estate is run by Jerome Bibey and is planted to a mix of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
With a high percentage of Merlot, this is a ripe, juicy and red-fruit-flavored wine. It is soft, with the tannins already well integrated into the plush fruit. (RV)
Fresh, with a juicy, medium-weight core of plum and dark cherry fruit, infused with anise and tobacco notes, backed by a light tarry thread on the finish. Drink now through 2021. (JM)
