In a nutshell:
Pleasant, easy drinking, reliable Claret from an up-and-coming estate near the tip of the Medoc.
From the very highly rated 2016 vintage this classic Medoc is a blend almost half and half Merlot and Cab Sav with a little Cab Franc and Petit Verdot. Rich aromas lead onto a smooth palate of dark fruit, spice and toasted notes with grippy tannins.
When to drink:
Medoc wines like this Labadie are versatile enough to work with a wide range of meat dishes. Classic pairings include duck, and roast beef.
