Red Wine – Médoc Cru Bourgeois Château Labadie 75cl
- Characteristic varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon 43% – Merlot 51% – Petit Verdot 3% – Cabernet Franc 3%.
- The terroir: Area of 50 hectares. The vines have an average age of 30 years.
- The estate: Its name is said to come from a parcel of land on which an abbey stood. A deformation of contemporary French resulted in the name Labadie.
This property, classified “cru bourgeois” in 1932 and acquired by Yves Bibey in 1970, has continually expanded and now covers nearly 50 hectares.
- The wine: Garnet-coloured robe with ruby edges. Bouquet opened to grilled, sweet and spicy notes as well as notes of figs and very ripe black berries. The onset is round, followed by a silky development accompanied by fleshy tannins combining volume and fruity notes for a fine and elegant ensemble with a long and very aromatic finish.
- Food pairing : Enjoy with a pork tenderloin and a side-dish of crunchy vegetables, a rabbit stew with new potatoes or a duck parmentier. Can be kept 3 to 5 years.
