"For the reds, it is pretty straightforward (for Julien Labet, that is!): the grapes are either fully or partially de-stemmed, depending on the vintage. The Pinot Noir and Trousseau are aged in barrels, while the Poulsard is aged in ancient foudres. They are bottled unfined and unfiltered.

The first style of wines (and the majority of Labet’s wines) are topped-up and made in a more modern style in which oxidation is prevented. Labet’s wines made in this style are in the line called Fleurs. The objective with this line is to transmit an original expression of the vine, the grape, the terroir and the climate. "We like to trust our intuition," Julien says. "But we also feel that tradition includes experiences that the present should feed on." With these wines, all plots are vinified separately. The fermentations are long and at a low temperature. The wine is raised on its fine lees in 228-liter barrels that vary between 4 and 15 years old. The upbringing of the whites depends largely on what the vintage presents and the parcel—there really is no recipe. The lees-stirring is not systematic, nor is the amount of time the wine will spend in barrel." - Importer Note
