Laleure WinesThe wines we make at Laleure all come from grapes grown on the property. Growing our own grapes enables us to control all aspects of quality from the ground into the bottle. The wines we make are truly representative of the local terroir and of our northeast Ohio location. In fact, the perhaps surprising success we have had growing even the sensitive Pinot Noir grape is becoming more well known, and is becoming a specialty of our region. After all, northeast Ohio falls within "The Pinot Belt" which is a latitude band around the globe that also extends to other great pinot regions including The Burgoyne in France and The Willamette in Oregon
Our Cabernet Franc is the favorite for lovers of big red wines. Aged in American oak barrels for a minimum of 2 years, it is powerful yet smooth with plenty of dark berry fruit.
Laleure makes a wide variety of chardonnays. Our chardonnay's are now fully aged in French oak barrels using a custom toast profile. Most vintages we bottle a portion without aging in oak for our customers who prefer the more crisp flavor and mouthfeel
Laleure Pinot is changing as we move towards new winemaking technique. We continue to strive to maintain a strong presence of fruit, typically bright cherry. It is aged in French oak barrels using a custom toasting profile optimized for the style wine we love.
Riesling at Laleure is a favorite. It generally has a bit over 1% residual sugar, just enough to balance the acid. Lots of fruit!
Our vignoles is preferred by our customers who like a crisp white wine. It is also the basis of a blend we make called Three Dog White. Both are well balanced with a hint of grapefruit.
