Château Labat Haut-Médoc '12

Château Labat is a tiny hamlet, first reported with vineyard-activity in the 18th century.  It is located in the Haut-Médoc, on the right side of the bank in Bordeaux, near St. Julien and various Cru Classés such as Lagrange and Gruaud Larose.  Its direct neighbor is Château Caronne Ste. Gemme - owned by the Nony family.  The Nony family decided to purchase this tiny, 7 hectare settlement in the early 1900s and the 4th generation of the family is currently in command.

The family follows "grand cru" protocol, creating a blend of great structure and serious bold fruit, accompanied by oak nuances (about 25% new French oak).  It shares the terroir of its more well-known, pricier, neighbors, but at Cru Bourgeois classification, this is a wine of great value!  With the 2012 vintage, a vintage of value in itself, this wine has seen some age creating a drinkable blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot. Feel free to hold onto it for a few more years, as well.
