The Labry domaine is thirty acres of vineyards in five villages, with two appellations in Burgundy: Auxey-Duresses and Hautes Côtes de Beaune. It produces red and white wines.
André Labry bought the domain in 1948. His son Bernard took it up in 1970, and now works with his daughter Sophie. Bernard does the winemaking while Sophie loves working outside in the vineyards growing the best grapes. She arrived in 2003 after studying in Bordeaux, New Zealand and South Africa. She has kept her father’s method started in 1980, to train the vines in lyres, or Y shaped. This gives better exposure to the sun and makes picking easier because the rows are higher allowing grass to grow between rows.
The soil is limestone with white clay on top of the slopes. After manual picking and total destemming the wine is fermented for sixteen days and aged in barrels for twelve months.
