Chateau Clos Labory 2005


Saint Estephe, Bordeaux, France

750ml |13.5% ABV 

Grape Varietals: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc

The wines produced show a lovely color, a rich, complex nose and a structure typical of Saint-Estèphe. Château Cos-Labory is a member of the Académie du Vin de Bordeaux, of the Commanderie du Bontemps du Médoc et des Graves, and also of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux. Made from fruit from the best plots on the Cos hill, Château Cos Labory combines characteristic Saint-Estèphe vigour and elegance. Its rich tannin content gives this wine good ageing potential.

Bernard Audoy usually makes a gracious, middleweight wine at his property across from Cos d'Estournel, at the southern border of St-Estèphe. This 2005 is more powerful, with jasmine and bergamot scents buzzing over serious tannins. The fruit is completely hidden, as black as the tannins that coat the mouth in mineral flavors, neither ripping nor softened up. Sleek and expansive, this is set to age for ten years or more.
As with most Bordeaux red wines this wine pairs well with braised or slow cooked red meats and game. Hearty stews and duck cassoulet.
