6 Top Value Priced Bordeaux Tasted 8/14

1. Chateau Labrousse Blaye Cotes de Bordeaux (2012)

Next » 1 of 6
Nuanced on the nose with hints of dried flowers and herbs creeping from the glass followed by a lovely spice notes, more violet accents, a hint of rosemary and black currant fruit. A bit round and fruity on entry then this quickly gains focus in the mouth with notes of tobacco, ash, ands soil emerging early on the palate followed by and elegant mineral flecked midpalate that leads to a moderately long finish replete with wild cherry, black raspberry, and dried herbal flavors. The tannins are firm but covered by the fruit and the acidity well judged. This is quite good and rather classic Bordeaux in a slightly fruity style. 88pts
