Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

The Chateau des Labourons Fleurie is elegant and complex, fruity and perfumed, expressing the best of the Fleurie "terroir."

Critical Acclaim

"This is a ripe and juicy wine, full of cherry fruit, that also has a sense of structure. It has tannins that promise some aging as well as the natural fruitiness of Beaujolais."
