Terroir: Domaine Labruyere owns approximately 35 acres of prime vineyards spread across Moulin à Vent. This selection is sourced from the vineyards of Champ de Cour and Clos du Carquelin where vines are very densely planted in soils of granite and quartz. Vines here average 50 years old.
Vinification: Grapes are hand picked parcel by parcel as they reach phenolic ripeness and transported to the winery in small 25kg crates to avoid damage. Upon arrival the grapes are sorted twice prior to de-stemming. Vinification begins with a 20 day maceration at cool temperatures in stainless steel and concrete vats prior to aging in the cellars in older oak casks. No new oak is used for this cuvee.

This is a rich cru wine with red-plum flavors as well as tannins that are still young and forceful. Densely textured, the wine has plenty of potential. It will become a ripe and fruity wine while also remaining firm and structured. Drink from 2018.

Blended from estate parcels with vines averaging 50 years of age, this wine is dark and Bretty, sustained by a powerful tannic structure that seems to set the funk aside and present a resonant, savory wine. Dark and mushroomy, this is a wine for people who are not averse to some healthy microbial activity in their Beaujolais.
