A background touch of wood can be found on the petrol and white orchard fruit-suffused nose. The round and fleshy flavors possess an attractive mouth feel while displaying acceptable length on the somewhat one-dimensional finish. This very forward effort should drink well immediately.-Burghound

The Labet family has lived in Beaune for 300 years and has been making wine under their label since the 1980s. François Labet grew up in the family home, Bastion Notre Dame, in the center of Beaune. The bastion was built in 1637, during the Thirty Years' War, and has been the family home since 1800. Emile Labet, François's grandfather, was the mayor of Beaune from 1929 to 1932. The domaine was named for Emile's son Pierre, and François honors his father by maintaining the name. All of the vines are estate owned, and François's focus is in the vineyard. "You can't make great cuisine without great ingredients," he explains. The wines are made at the family's estate, Château de la Tour in Clos de Vougeot, using identical viticulture and vinification as Château de la Tour. Labet's common sense approach to winegrowing has brought good fortune through wines of extraordinary merit.
