Labet Chardonnay Fleurs 2013

In Rotalier, a small village of the Jura (France North-East), Julien, Romain and Charline, Alain's children, lead this wonderful wine-growing company, which I personally visited, few years ago.

This Chardonnay, from old vineyards - planted between 1953 and 1975, on the blue moon of the Lias - is not sous voile, but ouillé. So barrique 228 liters, Burgundy style winemaking, possessing its specific and determined territorial character.

Even though this is a entry-level wine, it is thin and fresh, declaring citrus, predominantly lemon, fruit of passion and pineapple, yellow flowers and lively minerality.

The expressiveness continues to the palate, coherent and precise, with an exciting mineral attitude, mixed with fruity stamp, generating harmonious sips, whose acidity accentuates the drink.

Length closing, with refreshing minerality and exotic fruit returns.
