Description

Chateau Labadie Medoc

In Chateau Labadie Medoc juicy Merlot represents just over half the blend with 46% Cabernet Sauvignon and a dash a crunchy Cab Franc. Expect aromas of ripe black fruit, and a hint of cedar from one year in oak (25% new). Yields at Labadie are restricted, resulting in wines of impressive concentration, which age exceptionally well. Still, with its rounded tannins and refreshing acidity, this is difficult to resist now.

Chateau Labadie was classed as a Cru Bourgeois in the 1932 classification and again in the 2003 revision. The wine estate lies at the northern tip of the Medoc, around the village of Begadan, and for many years the grapes were sold to the local co-operative.

In 1988, however, owners Yves and Adelaide Bibey changed policy and decided to make their own wine.

In 1999 their son, Jerome, joined them and he has gradually taken over the control of the estate. The soil is a combination of clay/limestone, highly suited to the Merlot grape, and gravel, on which Cabernet Sauvignon is planted. The estate owns 40 hectares of vines, producing 2400 hectolitres each year from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

The vineyard is situated between the Gironde river and the Atlantic ocean, so it takes advantage of a particular climate which gives sweetness. The vineyard of this family-run estate is divided into two very distinct parts: clay limestone soils, providing the wine with good structure and gravels, which add finesse and a certain fruitiness.

The wines are fermented in either stainless steel or cement tanks, and aged in oak barrels, a small percentage new, for 12-15 months prior to bottling.
