Founded in 1896, Chateau De La Tour is the largest vineyard holder of the famed Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru.
“This Domaine possesses by far the most important parcel of the grand cru Clos de Vougeot and has the privilege of being the sole producer that has its winery within the Clos itself. The quality of the grapes in the Vieilles Vignes is exceptional and their vinification in whole bunches, not destemmed, gives a wine of prodigious breeding, worthy of comparison with the greatest Richebourg. The standard cuvee, excellent also, is produced from the much younger vines…”
Michel Bettane & Thierry Desseauve, Le Grand Guide des Vins de France, 2008
Chateau De La Tour practices extreme low yields and fully organic practices (the only producers of Clos de Vougeot to do so) resulting in dense and deep wines which routinely improve for a quarter of a century.
“With whole bunches I think I’m making pre-World-War 2 wines with modern techniques and equipment, these are wines to age. Today we growers are trapped in a mouse or rat-trap, many customers today want grand crus, but to drink today! I think by our technique, though you still have to wait for some maturity, I think the curve of aging is more straight-forward.”
