Style Rich, aromatic, fruity

This wine is elegant and complex. It is characteristically fruity and perfumed expressing the best of the Fleurie ''terroir''.

A deep and bright red colour. The nose offers a nice bouquet of red and black fruits and delicate notes of spices. In the mouth, the texture is rich and very aromatic, fruity with subtle toasted note. The finish is persistent.

The Château has a long history, over five generations of the ''de Lescure'' family, and it was already producing wine by the 18th Century. It dominates the beautiful hillsides of the Fleurie appellation and is located 3 km further up the hill from the hamlet of Les Labourons. The name ''Labourons'' in fact means ''let's plough'', and bears witness to the diverse agricultural heritage of this land.

Henry Fessy is The Cru Beaujolais Specialist, located in the heart of Beaujolais. Their winery sits in the shadow of Mont Brouilly and their unique domaine is the most geographically extensive in the region and includes vineyards in nine of the 10 Cru appellations. This unique resource allows their team to gain an intimate understanding of each vineyard and the specificities of each vintage resulting in exceptional and expressive wines.

Laurent Chevalier, their Director and a talented winemaker, crafts wines showcasing the myriad of styles possible from the Gamay grape and the region's varied terroirs. Beaujolais wines range from light and fruity through to floral, earthy and mineral in character. Their lighter body, moderate alcohol levels and affinity with a wide range of ingredients and cuisines makes them the perfect everyday wine.

Henry Fessy's roots lie in the late 19th century when the Fessy family moved from the Loire Valley and began growing grapes in Beaujolais. They founded their business in 1888 and over the years developed a successful enterprise as a grower, negociant and winemaker.

In 2008 the Fessy family sold to the family-owned Burgundian wine producer Maison Louis Latour. With Louis Latour’s support the company has prospered and significant investment in their domaine and facilities has followed. In 2009 Louis Latour appointed winemaker Laurent Chevalier to lead the business.
