2018 François Labet Île De Beauté

Red

$28.00

Produced by François Labet (of Clos de Vougeot's Chateau de la Tour), this versatile 'Mediterranean Pinot' oozes personality.
The vineyard is located on the east coast of Corsica's Haute-Corse department, at 400-metres altitude above the town of Ghisonaccia. Unlike his Burgundies, François Labet fully de-stems the fruit for this wine and then ages it two-thirds in tank and one-third French oak before bottling. This new bottling is already open for business, with spice-plum and forest floor notes and even some secondary notes starting to shine through. On top of the sweet core of fruit there's some Mediterranean garrigue, a hint of anise and a kiss of French oak spice. The bright, clean finish reflects the wine's rocky, high country terroir with juicy tannins and snap of tangy acidity.
