Pierre Labet & Fontaine-Gagnard Burgundy 2015

François Labet has been responsible for both the Domaine du Château de la Tour in Vougeot and Domaine Pierre Labet since 1984. The Labet family come from Beaune – for at least the last 500 years anyway – indeed François’ grandfather was one-time mayor of Beaune.

François cultivates his vineyards, whether they are in the Clos de Vougeot or the Beaune domaine in exactly the same way and in the same place – the cuverie is in the Clos de Vougeot. Since 1992 they have been fully organic.

We are happy to report after our straight-out-of-the-container-tasting to be very impressed with the complex and attractively rich, dense and quite serious Pinot's from François Labet this vintage. The supporting tannins are ripe and supple and there is excellent body and finesse throughout the range. These are once again one of the vintage’s best examples from this much under appreciated appellation.

"The Labet 2015s are indeed very promising and should prove to be exceptionally long-lived."

Also in this offer are some of our favourite white Burgundies from Chassagne-Montrachet super-star; Fontaine-Gagnard. Winemaker Celine Fontaine has continued her strong run of form which has defined her recent vintages. The Premier Cru whites are all very well balanced and will give early-drinking pleasure, while the outstanding Grand Cru Bâtard-Montrachet & Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet will deserve their due time in a cold cellar!

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard is one of the finest and most important producers in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet. The domaine has its origin in the fine Gagnard-Delagrange holdings of forty-five years ago, as the vineyards hail from the marriage of Richard Fontaine to Jacques Gagnard’s oldest daughter, Laurence Gagnard, in 1982. The Gagnard family has always been very closely-knit, and much of the vineyard work amongst the various branches of the family continues to be done together. Céline Fontaine makes a bevy of fine wines from their excellent holdings in Chassagne-Montrachet. The heart and soul of Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard is their Chassagne-Montrachets, of which they own a fine clutch of premier crus and vines also in the grand crus of Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet and Montrachet itself.
