It’s still snowing here in CT, and many other states, and nothing goes better with snowstorms, juicy steaks and cozy fires than a velvety Bordeaux. Named an Editors’ Choice in Wine Enthusiast’s April 2019 issue, and awarded 91 Points, Château Labadie 2016 Médoc is a stellar choice.
“Both generous and well-structured” with “attractive black-currant fruits,” Roger Voss describes the voluptuous red as a powerful wine “full of potential from 2023.”
The Bibey Family has owned Chateau Labadie (which began as 9 acres and has grown to 148) since 1970. It’s in Begadan, a top Northern Medoc village.
Part of the original Crus Bourgeois classification in 1932, Chateau Labadie is now run by the dynamic young winemaker, Jérôme Bibey (seen here with Alex Milligan). Passionate about his work, he employs only sustainable agriculture practices in the vineyard. Steer your friends and customers right with this luscious Bordeaux at an approachable price!
While the 2016 vintage rests comfortably in France for a bit, collecting a little age, we currently still have some 2015, also a stellar vintage, in stock and ready to be shipped. Haven’t tried Labadie yet? There’s no better time: Order some samples today and we’ll ship them right out to you!
