ONE FAMILY, FOUR ESTATES
The history of wine in the Labruyère family began in the 19th century in Moulin-à-Vent. Their passion for the different terroirs of France has subsequently been handed down from one generation to the next, with the family extending its expertise from the Grands Crus of Burgundy to Champagne via Bordeaux.
DOMAINE LABRUYÈRE, MOULIN-À-VENT
Domaine Labruyère, in the hands of the Labruyère family since 1850, is constantly reinventing itself. Edouard Labruyère, Nadine Gublin (the estate’s oenologist) and their entire team strive to awaken the terrific terroirs of Moulin-à-Vent by producing wines that aren’t just spectacular when they’re young but also age incredibly well.
Respect for the individual character of each plot, together with the use of sophisticated Burgundy wine-making techniques, mean that Gamay is one of the world’s finest and most complex grape varieties.
Domaine Jacques Prieur, Meursault
Located in the town of Meursault, the estate boasts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines that form part of Burgundy’s most prestigious terroirs. From Montrachet to Chambertin via Corton, Echézeaux and Musigny, here you will find 23 of the most legendary Côte d’Or appellations.
Nadine Gublin, an oenologist and the domain’s technical director, and Edouard Labruyère have surrounded themselves with an experienced and passionate team with the aim of producing exceptional wines and to consolidate the estate’s reputation among Burgundy’s elite.
Château Rouget, Pomerol
En 1992, la famille Labruyère découvre Rouget et tombe sous le charme d’une appellation dont on dit qu’elle est « la plus bourguignonne du bordelais ». Persuadée de la qualité de son terroir, elle se fixe pour mission de redonner au Château Rouget ses lettres de noblesse.
Sa progression constante à chaque millésime permet aujourd’hui d’affirmer qu’il s’agit de l’un des 10 meilleurs crus de Pomerol.
Champagne J.M. Labruyère, Verzenay
The Labruyère family did not choose Verzenay by chance. An unofficial classification from 1873 ranked this Grand Cru village on the Montagne de Reims as one of the three best crus in Champagne.
Thanks to its status as a Récoltant-Manipulant (meaning they make and market Champagne under their own label), the Labruyère family – which owns and harvests 11 hectares – is expert in every stage of the viticulture and wine-making process. This allows the family to make the clear decision to opt for sustainable agriculture and an uncompromising approach so they can respect their fundamental values: terroir, tradition and excellence.
