Labouré-Roi Mâcon-Villages St. Armand 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Green-gold, tending towards bronze as it ages. Brilliant, with silvery highlights Bouquet: Ripe grapes, toasted almonds and hazelnuts in a floral (mayflower, elder, bracken, lime, verbena) and mineral (flint) setting. Butter, honey, and citrus fruits are also present. Taste: On the palate it is rich with an appealing taste of hazelnut. Unctuous and fresh with a silky balance. Long and structured, it is a great wine for aging.

Sweet pear, light caramel toast, a hint of cream, some floral notes, light cedar and a squirt of lime juice greet the nose. Round and fleshy with good acids keeping the fruit taut. A bit nervous today this will benefit from an hour's breathing or perhaps a year in the cellar to allow the elements to integrate. Finishes with a bit of mineral and tart green apple notes with a little bit of heat. 87pts

Green apples and a nice tartness with good oak and a funky finish. Serve with cheese and maybe a bit of jam and flatbread.

scrumptious aromas of melon, peach, golden apples, and little on the tropic side but terrific acidity to balance the fruit components and bring citrus flavors back into the overall profile of the wine, great complexity combined with the fruit characteristics with a wonderful length.

Some residual floral notes with something akin to wild gooseberry confit on the nose. At 3.5 years, this wine is getting a bit tired; the entry is cooked apple and peach with just a hint of unwanted oxidation. Creamy and clean finish - if unprepossessing. Not quite as good as the 2007, but a worthy wine all the same.

I really liked this wine. A little stiffled on the nose but a very balanced and complex palate. Classic pinot noir with soft fruit and tannins coming through in the mid palate and subtle hints of pepper on the back. This wine goes through stages in your mouth!

interesting style for this unusual pinot noir feels like a blend of gamay / pinot noir more body than a classic bourgogne

Extremely floral and feminine for a Cote de Nuits. The color is a deep dark ruby. The nose reveals scents of sugar plums, violets, blackberry cobbler with a hint of blue cheese. Fruit forward then melts into a savory almost buttered beef flavor. Medium finish, gentle tannins. Well balanced and a great deal.

($67) Rich and sumptuous, but with character. Honey, butterscotch and a hint of hazelnut permeate the fleshy texture as this white remains mouthfilling from start to finish. Drink now through 2012. 200 cases imported. Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2006 Laboure Roi, Domaine Meursault Clos de la Baronne 750ml

Established in 1832, Labouré-Roi is a forward-thinking winery is of Burgundy’s most successful producers with wines distributed to over thirty countries worldwide and annual sales revenues in excess of $70 million. On each bottle of Labouré-Roi is the regal fleur-de-lys, the emblem of the French King Louis VII. While this house respects its remarkable heritage, it has embraced the future like few other Burgundian producers. Labouré-Roi’s winemaking facility is indeed one of the more technically-advanced within the region, with a cellaring capacity of 1,300 barrels. This supplements an impressive 16th century cellar, which is still used for storage and aging of select bottles. Located in Nuits-Saint-George, Labouré-Roi has long been committed to making world-class wine accessible to all. To that end, it currently works with an impressive one hundred growers throughout nearly every major winemaking region of France, from regional appellations and the most celebrated Burgundy villages, to superlative Premier and Grand Cru vineyards. Labouré-Roi’s fine wines have over the years received numerous international awards and accolades Production Area Our Bourgogne Pinot Noir “Maximum” is a blend of grapes from villages in the Côtes de Beaune including Monthélie, Santenay and Mercurey. Grape Varieties 100% Pinot Noir Vinification Grapes are harvested at full maturity. A cold maceration leads to a slow fermentation during a three weeks period. The cap was punched down twice a day. The wine was then aged in oak barrels (2-to-3 year old) for 6 months before bottling. Color Dark ruby red Bouquet Strawberry and blackcurrant notes evolve into peppery and earthy notes. Taste Maximum is lively and structured in the mouth with a rich, long finish. Alcohol 12.5% Serving Suggestions Serve with delicate, aromatic dishes such as salads, meat or poultry tarts, or simmered beef and vegetables (pot-au-feu). Moreover, its delicacy makes a perfect choice for those who like red wine with fish. Its natural elegance predisposes this wine towards veal or hard cheeses like Gouda.
