Bourgogne Blanc

Château Labouré-Roi
Côte-d'Or, Burgundy, France

Chardonnay 100%

Bourgogne Chardonnay takes its specific character from where the grapes are grown and how they are vinified. "Maximum" arises from a judicious blend: the Chardonnay grapes from Meursault, with the sensual delight characteristic of its rich soil and long exposure to the sun, are balanced by the slightly syrupy Chardonnay from Beaune and Chassagne that forms this nicely structured blend. The ageing in French oak barrels gives the wine subtle accents of vanilla and toast.

Pale yellow in colour heightened by golden glints, toasted hazelnut bouquet, dried fig and dried, candied fruit. The palate is round and unctuous with flavours of vanilla and toast.

Chardonnay 100%

The POUILLY-FUISSE "Vieilles Vignes" is the most rustic of the Thibert wines. In fact, it’s a very robust wine, creamy, toasty, and very aromatic with a large aptitude for further ageing.

You enjoy the best flavours and you taste the aromatic richness if you drink at temperatures from 12° to 14°. Our recommendation is to consume our POUILLY-FUISSE "Vieilles Vignes" with fish dishes a little spicy or with dishes very delicate like: crayfish, lobster, salmon, marinated seafood dishes. The 70 year-old vines have yielded an intense, mineral, aromatic wine that is lovely now but will age superbly.
