Clos-Vougeot is the largest Grand Cru vineyard in the Côte de Nuits with over 50 hectares of vines and around 80 owners. In the middle of 

the Clos-Vougeot there is Chateau de la Tour, an ancient chateau built in 1890. Current owners are the Labet and Déchelette families whose 

holdings cover 5.48 hectares including one plot of 100 year old vines. The Clos-Vougeot has a gentle 3-4 degree slope from top to bottom and

is supported by three separate geologies with six different soil types that vary in depth and drainage. Soils at the top are quite shallow, coarse-

grained and have a high limestone content with good drainage. The middle section has a fine brown calcareous soil of 45 cm average depth

on limestone gravel and moderate drainage. At the bottom near the RN74 main road the soils are much deeper, have a high clay content with

poor drainage. Blending of these three different parcels produces a very complete, solid wine capable of long ageing.

Clos-Vougeot Vieilles Vignes is from a separate parcel of vines planted in 1910. Farmed organically with low yields, the wines are made in the

traditional way using whole bunches and aged in 100% new oak barrels. These structured wines show a deep ruby colour with a very ripe nose

of black cherry, cassis and plum marked by earth and spice aromas. On the palate the rich and concentrated flavours disclose a velvety texture,

all culminating in a finish of exceptional length.
