"One of St.-Emilion’s most hedonistically and lavishly endowed/ extravagant wines is a big-time winner. Unfortunately, the production from proprietor Axelle Courdurie is minuscule. The 2011 exhibits exotic black cherry and black raspberry fruit intermixed with spice aromas that resemble a Northern Rhone such as Cote Rotie. The complexity of the aromatics at this stage was surprising. Medium to full-bodied with luscious fruit and a silky, suave, savory finish, it will provide delicious drinking over the next 7-8 years." - Robert Parker

2010 Chateau de Sales Pomerol

"A juicy, well-toasted and forward style, with vanilla and anise up front, followed by medium-weight plum sauce and linzer torte flavors that glide through the polished finish."

Reviewed by: James Molesworth, Wine Spectator - 89pts

"Good medium ruby. Blackcurrant, violet and a dusty mineral note on the deep nose. Dense, lush and chewy, offering, pure, precise dark berry and floral flavors. Finishes broad, saline and very long, with a density of texture and a degree of fruit concentration that I have never before found in De Sales--and that I didn't even think was possible in view of this estate's very sandy soils. Without doubt the best wine ever made by owner Bruno de Lambert. Well done." -Stephen Tanzer

2012 Chateau Croix de Labrie Saint Emilion (Futures)

"If you want to impress a friend with a pure, hedonistic St.-Emilion that also offers an intellectual challenge, the 2012 Croix de Labrie, a St.-Emilion fruit bomb, is the wine for you. Unfortunately, the 250-case production means this cuvee is limited in availability. Aromas of incense, Christmas fruitcake, Asian plum sauce, blackberries, licorice and truffles soar from the glass of this dense plum/purple-colored wine. Opulent, voluptuously textured and medium to full-bodied with no hard edges to be found, it will drink well for a decade after bottling." -Robert Paker

2010 Chateau Croix de Labrie Saint Emilion

"One of the tiniest production as well as most seductive, opulent wines in all of Bordeaux, only 200 cases of the Croix de Labrie are made in most vintages. I was only able to taste the 2010 on one occasion and the aromatics revealed some oxidation, but the palate exploded with blue and black fruits intermixed with hints of coffee, chocolate and exotic Asian spices. Opulent, dense and super-concentrated, it should merit a mid-ninety point rating." -Robert Parker
