Château Tour Haut Labrit is made at a small property run by the Fontaneau family in the great value Entre-deux-Mers region. Their vineyards are superbly located in Moulon on the slopes of the Dordogne River, directly opposite Saint-Émilion. Here the family grow predominantly Merlot, which is very ripe and juicy in 2018, together with a touch of Cabernet Franc adding lovely floral freshness. A ripe nose with juicy fruit – mulberries, plums and raspberries – and a touch of violet. Remarkably easy-drinking, soft and supple despite its youth. Lots of fresh bramble fruit flavours with svelte tannins. A real charmer.
Averys began in 1793 and over the years, the family has built its reputation as one of the UK's most pioneering wine merchants. Today, it is 5th generation Mimi Avery introducing a new generation of wine lovers to Averys. At the heart of what we do - and have done for over 225 years - is share our passion for wine. We love discovering wines with a story to tell – whether for everyday drinking or fine wines for the cellar. So, if you're looking for 'real' wines, full of character and flavour, then welcome to Averys.
