Vinification Details

  • After being hand-picked, the grape-harvest «undergoes» the traditional carbonic maceration of Beaujolais wines. The length of the vatting period depends on the desired structure, but does not exceed eight days.

History

  • Bertrand Straebler was born in 1963. He became the Winemaker for Labouré-Roi in 1995. “Initially, I modelled my wine by imitating the older, traditional produce. Later, I let my imagination roam, abandoning empirical methods & modelling the vines with the respect they deserve. I always maintained the authentic balance of the landscape & soil. Every year, I work hard to respect what nature entrusts to me & pass on this creative work, to give pleasure to all those who love great Burgundy wines.”

Regional Information

  • Fleurie is one of the 10 Beaujolais Crus. The appellation area is in the southern part of the Beaujolais vineyards, to the north of the Rhône département. It is surrounded to the north and the east by the Moulin à vent appellation, to the west by the Chiroubles appellation and to the south by the Morgon appellation. The vines are planted on hillsides. The Fleurie appellation covers approximately 900 hectares.

Good but not outstanding

4 stars

Review from tesco.com

Acceptable, well-balanced red, if a trifle thin. However, at £5.50 well worth buying.

Excellent wine

I have had this wine before so I know I like it, but sadly this wine never arrived from Tesco. There was never any explanation as to why or what is happenng with my payment. Rest assured I will not trust Tesco Wine delivery again!

Review from tesco.com

I would normally try and wait for one of my favourite Chilean or Argentinian malbecs to be on special offer - but when this deal came up- and I read others reviews - I bought a case. I have to say I was disappointed! This wine doesn't have any depth of flavour and is just a bit flat. Won't buy again.

Finest Malbec

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

Good value for the special offer on at the time. A quality wine with lots of body and dark fruit. Am enjoying drinking my way through the stock that I bought.

Would not buy again

Review from tesco.com

If I had been served this in a restaurant it would have gone back. OK at the end of a very heavy night!
