Established in 1832, Labouré-Roi is one of the largest wine houses in Burgundy, producing wines which respect their history, culture and terroir. Located in Nuits-Saint-George, Labouré-Roi’s state-of-the-art winery produces distinctive wines from major French appellations. The house works closely with over 100 growers to ensure each individual wine reflects the unique characteristics of its respective terroir. The winemaking team is led by 4th generation enologist Bertrand Straebler, who provides ongoing guidance in all aspects of viticulture and vinification to ensure that each bottle best represents the house style. The winery also has an impressive cellar, which dates back to the 15th century, and is comprised of 50 large format barrels called “Foudre” which have a capacity to age 5,000 liters each. Labouré-Roi, a wine house steeped in the rich history of Burgundy, delivers quality French wines at a great price, truly making French wines accessible to all. Production Area The Languedoc Roussillon spreads out over 4 districts in the south of France: Pyrénées Orientales, Aude, Hérault and Gard. It represents, by itself, 75% of French Vins de Pays. Since 1987, when vintners became aware of the potential of this region of clay and limestone soils, and started implementing new quality initiatives (introduction of new grape varieties, reduced yields, etc.), there has been a veritable explosion in the quality of these wines. “Les Sangliers” translates to “Wild Boars”, as they are known to roam this region of France. Grape Varieties 100% Merlot Vinification The bunches are de-stemmed and cold macerated to maximize color extraction. Fermentation takes place in tank at a controlled temperature of 80°F, followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine is then further aged in tank for 4-6 months before bottling. Color Ruby red Bouquet Lovely aromas of black cherry, plum and blackberry Taste A velvety smooth wine with flavors of soft raspberry and plum Alcohol 12% Serving Suggestions This wine is a perfect match for pasta, poultry, and pork dishes.

They are then fermented under controlled temperatures for 4-6 days to produce a deep colored wine, packed with fruit and firm natural tannins. After fermentation, the wine is kept in tank for 5-9 months before bottling.

Labouré-Roi, a wine house steeped in the rich history of Burgundy, delivers quality French wines at a great price, truly making French wines accessible to all. Production Area Pouilly Fuissé is considered the “cru” of the Maconnais and it is here that the Chardonnay grape is able to reach unsurpassed levels of elegance. Lying on a foundation of fossiliferous limestone identical to those found further north in the Côte d’Or, the Bajocien escarpments of Solutré and Vergisson owe their dramatic profile to the presence of hard fossil corals which have resisted erosion. The vines are planted on the slopes and at the foot of these two hills on marly-limestone soils of Jurassic origin mixed with small rocks and schist. The hillsides have an easterly or south-easterly exposure and altitudes of 820 to 920 feet. Grape Varieties 100% Chardonnay Vinification Grapes are harvested at optimum maturity. The wine is vinified in stainless steel tanks before the juice undergoes malolactic fermentation. The wine is then aged in stainless steel tanks for a period of nine months before it is bottled and released. Color Pale gold with green tints Bouquet Distinct mineral notes with nuances of almond, hazelnut, citrus, peach, buttered brioche, and honey Taste Opulent and structured with natural richness Alcohol 13% Serving Suggestions Pairs well with king prawns, lobster, and crawfish, as well as foie gras, white meats in cream sauce, and many varieties of goat cheese. Its aromatic power means it can also match spicy and exotic foods such as couscous, sweet-and-sour dishes and sushi.

Pouilly-Fuissé Vallon d’Or 2010 - 86 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Named after the almost gold appearance of the Chardonnay vines at harvest time, this is a soft wine, with hints of the mineral tang that embodies PouillyFuissé. It has pear and white peach fruit flavors, soft and ready to drink.

Pouilly-Fuissé Vallond’Or 2009 - 87 points, Wine Enthusiast/ A superrich wine, full of apricot and Golden Delicious apples, with a touch of wood that rounds out the chalky, mineral texture. The wine is a delicious balance between ripe fruit and structure, ready to drink.
