Chateau de Laborde Cotes de Nuits "Cuvee K" Burgundy France
Only 4000 bottles made each year, this is a real find!
Bright golden yellow in colour. The nose reveals notes of mild spices (cinnamon, vanilla), mirabelle plum and marshmallow.
The mouth is ample, full and rich, without ever falling into heaviness thanks to the support of a fine and fresh acidity. The balance is just perfect.
As well as winning numerous awards, Cuvee "K" is rated in the Top 1% of wines in the world on the independent review site VIVINO.
At the heart of Cote d'Or in Burgundy, the prestigious site of Château de Laborde reconnects with its 3-centuries old wine-making past thanks to award winning wine-maker Hervé Kerlann.
