Reviews 94 points Burghound "Hints of wood and menthol can be found on the even riper nose that is composed by notes of extract of black cherry, dark raspberry, anise, rose petal and a whiff of earth. Once again there is superb mid-palate density to the opulent yet exceptionally serious and imposingly-scaled flavors that are shaped by a firm core of robust tannins on the hugely long yet impeccably well-balanced finish where the wood resurfaces and it's not subtle.

The Domaine Chateau De La Tour estate

About Domaine Chateau De La Tour

Château de la Tour, located in the heart of the prestigious Clos de Vougeot vineyard in Burgundy, is an iconic representation of the power and historical richness of the Côte de Nuits appellation. The winery is presided over by François Labet, a viticultural maestro whose intimate and regenerative farming methods have kept this prestigious vineyard in organic harmony since the early 90s. Labet's dedication to maintaining the purity of the land shines through in the wines' distinct character, a direct reflection of the estate's mosaic of diverse soils and prime proximity to illustrious Grand Cru vineyards, such as Musigny, Grands-Echezeaux, and Échezeaux.

A solitary grandeur on the clos, Château de la Tour, stands tall as one of the original buyers from the first subdivision of Clos de Vougeot in 1889 and is the single largest landholder today, commanding almost 12 percent of the appellation across its 15-acre estate.

The Château's winemaking philosophy is deeply rooted in traditional techniques, like vinifying whole bunches, including stems, a testament to Labet's meticulous approach that yields wines of exceptional precision. A true gem of Château de la Tour is the centenarian Pinot Noir vines, their low yields contributing to the intense and concentrated character of the wines. Particularly noteworthy is the Hommage à Jean Morin, a limited edition cuvée that showcases the richness and finesse of the estate's old vines. Under the expertise of consulting winemaker Sylvain Pataille, the Château's annual production counts 22,000 bottles of the Cuvée Classique and 3,000 bottles of Cuvée Vielles Vignes.

At Château de la Tour, François Labet captures the soul of Clos de Vougeot, crafting wines that embody the rich heritage and unique terroir of this world-renowned vineyard.
