Château Labarde Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Labarde Rouge

Château Labarde is a small 5-hectare vineyard in the Haut-Médoc appellation. Part of the Château Dauzac estate, it is made at the Dauzac cellars with the same care and attention as its older brother. It generally has a promising deep color with a bouquet that is both very pronounced and complex (red fruit and vanilla). Smooth, suave and well-structured, it is worth ageing for several years before enjoying with roast meat or game.


2013 Château Labarde label
Appellation : Haut-Médoc

Wine style

Soft and Sensual

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 60% / Merlot 40%

Weather

There was record rainfall during the first half of 2013. Spring was very cool, even cold (May and June), and this caused a major delay in vine growth (flowering). Much more clement weather (warm and sunny) arrived in July and lasted until the harvest.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Crystal-clear, beautifully intense ruby-red colour.

Nose

Elegant, very fruity nose with hints of cherry and subtle toasty oak.

Mouth

Starts out very pleasantly on the palate with well-integrated oak and hints of redcurrant. Round, balanced, and easy-going, it adapts to a wide variety of foods.

Consumption period

2016 - 2028
