Fessy bolsters Beaujolais output

Henry Fessy has advanced its expansion ambitions within Beaujolais by taking over wine production at the 18 hectare Fleurie estate Château des Labourons.

Owned by the Lescure family, the property is located three kilometres up the hill from the hamlet of Les Labourons, with its south and west-facing vineyards planted at 350-400m altitude on largely granitic soil.

A statement from Fessy, which forms part of Burgundian producer Louis Latour, praised the property’s wines as “elegant and complex, fruity and perfumed, expressing the best of the Fleurie ‘terroir’”.

As reported this week by db, Beaujolais is currently in the process of creating a “premier cru” classification for its top vineyards to help boost prices of the region’s top wines.

The announcement follows confirmation from Louis Latour earlier this year that it would be stepping up its investment in Beaujolais as a solution to the limited opportunities for expansion within Burgundy.
