In addition to overseeing Château de La Tour in the Clos de Vougeot, François Labet owns holdings in Beaune, Meursault and Gevrey-Chambertin. These wines are produced organically and although François has an operational base in Beaune, élevage takes place in Château de la Tour’s cellars in the Clos de Vougeot. The white wines are given a brief period of lees contact following fermentation, but with no bâtonnage (lees stirring). Whites are given a light fining and none of the wines are filtered. Purity is François ’aim.
"This plot lies above Les Marconnets, on the border with Savigny and at the beginning of the wooded Montagne de Beaune. There is something excitingly candied here, a touch of sherbet, a whiff of freshly baked pastry and a bready density from a little extended lees contact. Verve, energy and body are the hallmarks of this wine. Although this hits the ground running, it makes for rather delightful older bones"
