Anne Sophie Dubois Fluerie Labourons 2020
Les Labourons is a selection of the best fruit from the old vine parcel of Les Labourons. In 2017 once she received the nod that her Domaine would be certified organic from 2019 she wanted to rename the wine and have a new label drawn to showcase the lieu dit itself and the next chapter in the Domaine’s history. In 2018 the yields are eye wateringly low, just 20 hl/ha. Partial whole cluster fermentation. Aged for 10 months in seasoned oak cask. Bottled unfined & unfiltered.
“Les Labourons 2019: 100% whole bunches. Maturing in (old) barrels 100%, as usual. The wine will benefit from a slight opening before drinking so that the complexity of this cuvée is expressed. Very good potential, all in delicacy” – Anne Sophie Dubois
“Brilliant violet. Vibrant. Mineral and spice-accented red and blue fruit and floral scents convey outstanding purity and sharp focus. Silky and penetrating on the palate, offering sappy raspberry, boysenberry, candied rose and smoky mineral flavours that deepen and turn sweeter with aeration. Closes impressively long and precise, with resonating florality and polished tannins that sneak in late ” – 94 pts – Vinous – Josh Raynolds
