Labouré-Roi Pinot Noir Bourgogne Maximum 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Red and black fruits (strawberry, cherry, blackcurrant, bilberry) later evolving into peppery and earthy notes. Taste is lively and structured in the mouth with a well-rounded and supple backbone. 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.

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

A light and ready red Burgundy with fresh cherry Pinot Noir notes. This is a great wine to sip on its own before a meal, and it performs very well alongside lamb stews and richly flavored fish dishes.

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.

A light and ready Bourgogne with fresh cherry Pinot Noir tones. This wine is a great sipping wine and would do well with lamb stews and richly-flavored fishes.
