“Tremendous wines” from the family behind Château de La Tour

These fine Burgundies are grown and made by François and Edouard Labet—the pioneering winegrowers behind Château de La Tour in Clos de Vougeot. Under the Labets’ gifted and uncompromising stewardship, Château de La Tour has become recognised as one of the very top (you could argue the top) producers of Clos de Vougeot. Fortunately, one doesn’t have to pay Grand Cru prices to reap the benefits of this family’s undoubted talents and experience.

Already operating at a high level, the quality has stepped up further in recent vintages. Labet’s son Edouard has now entered the picture, bringing a revision of ideas and practices, and organic conversion in the vineyards. 

Alongside his ancient vines in Vougeot (the oldest in the clos), Labet also farms 10 hectares of vineyards in Beaune, Savigny-lès-Beaune, Chorey-lès-Beaune, Meursault and Gevrey-Chambertin. These vineyards are home to many old vines and are micro-managed according to the same exacting standards as Labet’s Grand Cru vines. François has an operational hub in Beaune, comprising a seven-person vineyard team, two permanent cellar hands, and two additional hands on deck during vinification. The wines are matured in the cellars of Château de La Tour.

“François Labet, the owner, and manager of Chateau de la Tour, is, however, making tremendous wines from his other family estate, Domaine Pierre Labet, which has vineyard holdings scattered among Burgundy’s appellations. They should not be missed.” Steen Öhman, Winehog.com
