Chateau de la Tour is the heart of Clos Vougeot as well as its most important Domaine. The Chateau de la Tour is located entirely within the walls of the famed vineyard of Clos de Vougeot, just downhill from the landmark castle that bears the same name. It is the only Clos Vougeot vinified inside the Clos de Vougeot! The Clos de Vougeot vineyard is by far the largest Grand Cru in Burgundy, and Chateau de la Tour is its largest landowner. The wines of Chateau de la Tour are exceedingly long-lived, with a tremendous combination of power and grace. The vines for Chateau de la Tour average forty-five years old, with their Vieilles Vignes being over seventy-five years old! Our old, trusted friend François Labet, proprietor of this esteemed Domaine, is not only a great winemaker, but also a true gentleman in every sense of the word, and it is a pleasure to share his company, and the company of his cellar with you!
