Labouré-Roi's winemaking facility is indeed one of the more technically-advanced within the region, with a cellaring capacity of 1,300 barrels. This supplements an impressive 16th century cellar, which is still used for storage and aging of select bottles. Located in Nuits-Saint-George, Labouré-Roi has long been committed to making world-class wine accessible to all. To that end, it currently works with an impressive one hundred growers throughout nearly every major winemaking region of France, from regional appellations and the most celebrated Burgundy villages, to superlative Premier and Grand Cru vineyards.
Beaujolais Nouveau is released the third Thursday of November every year (one week before Thanksgiving). It represents a taste and celebration of the new harvest!
Beaujolais, Gleizé and Graves, France
The grapes are vinified with semi-carbonic fermentation and go through a 7-day maceration period. Malolactic fermentation follows quickly after to help reduce the acidity and increase the roundness of the wine. Beaujolais Nouveau is bottled shortly after.
Deep bright red
Aromas of violet and small red fruits such as redcurrant and raspberry
Harmonious with concentrated flavors of small red berry fruits and soft tannins
Always serve slightly cool. Delicious with cold cuts, pâté, turkey, chicken, light meats, and soft creamy cheeses. A great wine for Thanksgiving! Drink young. less
