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.
