Château de La Tour is a wine producer in Burgundy, owned by the Labet and Dechelette families and managed by Francois Labet since 1984. They make a range of Grand Cru wines in the Clos Vougeot vineyard and are the largest landholder owning nearly 11% of the land which are all situated on the middle and upper slopes of the Clos. Among their parcels includes one that is planted to vines that are more than 100 years old, and are the source for the Cuvée Vieilles Vignes and Cuvée Hommage Jean Morin wines, named after owner François Labet's grandfather, and only produced in the best vintages.
The domaine began farming organically since 1992 with highly controlled yields to ensure the quality of the grapes. The grapes are whole-bunch fermented and then matured in French oak barrels for 16-18 months in which the proportion of new oak depends on the cuvée – 50% for the regular Clos Vougeot cuvée and 100% for the Vieilles Vignes and Cuvée Hommage Jean Morin wines.

A dense nose features notes of very ripe plum, cassis, violet, spice, earth and tea nuances that are trimmed in moderate wood and menthol notes. There is excellent intensity and power to the concentrated middle weight plus flavors that possess an abundance of dry extract that pushes the very firm core of tannins to the background on the moderately austere, complex and wonderfully long finish. This is solidly well-balanced and while it's quite firm it's not hard or rustic.
