Château des Labourons dominates the beautiful hillsides of the Fleurie appellation. It is located 3 kilometres further up the hill from the hamlet of Les Labourons. The combination of the altitude, slope, exposure and quality of the soil have created a promising terroir in the heart of the Fleurie Cru. Château des Labourons' current architecture dates from the 19th century. It was rebuilt from ashes after a devastating fire, but still retains some of its original architectural character. This Château has a long history, over five generations of the "de Lescure" family, and it was already producing wine by the 18th century.
The Château carries out non-carbonic vinification in open vats with the very best grapes. After the pneumatic pressing and fermentations, the wine is matured in old oak tuns before bottling.
Our Fleurie « Château des Labourous » 2017 shows a deep colour and reveals notes of fresh fruits. The mouth is ripe with darker fruits flavors. A fined grained palate and a beautiful finish.
