Francois Labet Vdp Ile Be Beaute Pinot 2017
6 PACK BUY! Super smart and juicy Pinot from Corsica!
Produced by François Labet, one of Burgundy’s pioneers of organic viticulture and the largest vineyard holder in Clos de Vougeot grand cru with Château de la Tour. This vibrant, versatile “Mediterranean Burgundy” oozes personality and value.
Labet has a holiday house in the rugged dramatic island of Corsica and has some good friends who are growers there. One of these friends has a rocky, high-altitude vineyard planted to Pinot Noir and so they decided to see what they could do together. The vineyard is located on the east coast of Corsica’s Haute-Corse department at 400-metres altitude, above the town of Ghisonaccia. Unlike his Burgundies, François Labet fully destems the fruit for this wine and then ages it in tank and one-third French oak before bottling. The new bottling reflects this rocky, high country site offering abundance crunchy kirsch/dark and red berry fruit as well as Mediterranean garrigue and a touch of anise. There’s good texture, juicy tannins and snap of tangy acidity. This is a super smart juicy Pinot.. Vive la France! Stelvin
