The Beaujolais wine producer Henry Fessy, a branch of the Burgundian producer Louis Latour, has recently taken over the wine production of the Lescure family, owners of Chateau des Labourons and 18 heactares of the prestigious Fleurie appellation.
The Lescure family, whose family seat has been at Chateau des Labourons for many generations, welcome Louis-Fabrice Latour and Laurent Chevalier, managing director of Henry Fessy, to the partnership which is sure to play an important role in the re-emergence of Beaujolais wine.
Chateau de Labourons dominates the beautiful hillsides of the Fleurie appellation. It is located 3 kilometers further up the hill than the hamlet of Les Labourons. The Château overlooks a stunning landscape characterised by twisting roads climbing through vineyards.
The vines are planted at an altitude of 350-400 metres on soil mainly composed of pink granite. The land, steeply sloping, have mainly a southerly or westerly exposure and requires manual work. The Château des Labourons Fleurie is elegant and complex, fruity and perfumed, expressing the best of the Fleurie “terroir”.
