Domaine Labet & Chateau de la Tour

François Labet has been responsible for both the Domaine du Château de la Tour in Vougeot and Domaine Pierre Labet since 1984. The Labet family come from Beaune – for at least the last 500 years anyway – indeed François’ grandfather was one-time mayor of Beaune.

François cultivates his vineyards, whether they are in the Clos de Vougeot or the Beaune domaine in exactly the same way and in the same place – the cuverie is in the Clos de Vougeot. Since 1992 they have been fully organic & every vineyard Biodynamic since 2015.

“In my opinion, the kind of wines that we produce at the moment have no equivalent compared to past vintages,” Labet enthused. “We have the right viticulture, picking time and winemaking. Everything is now so controlled.” I concur. These wines conveyed much more purity and elegance than I expected. They did not seem so eager to impress or as hubristic as I found them previously. The result is that they articulate their respective terroirs with greater clarity. Even though the Domaine Pierre Labet wines do not occupy the most prestigious vineyards, they surpass their potential and represent great value.
— Neal Martin, Vinous

These are once again one of the vintage’s best examples from this much under appreciated appellation.
