Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes Chateau de la Tour 2016

The largest grand cru in the Côte de Nuits, Clos de Vougeot covers 50 hectares, with over 100 parcels and around 80 owners. There is enormous diversity here, in terms of terroir, with a wide variety of slopes, aspects, altitudes, drainage and underlying geology. Add to this the differing ages of the vines, methods of cultivation and winemaking, and it becomes clear why there is such a vast range of styles and qualities, all perfectly entitled to the Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru label. We regularly emphasise the importance of individual producers in Burgundy and this is particularly true of Clos de Vougeot. We are indeed fortunate to be partners of Château de La Tour and the Labet family

"Formerly from vines from the oldest block this vintage comes from various parcels and from several separate pickings. A glittering ruby in colour, this has a stunning nose, revealing power and elegance in perfect balance. Cherries, cassis, wild blackberry liqueur and violets all play a role, reflected on the palate which is sumptuous, luxuriant and super-ripe yet with a refined, well-integrated tannic backdrop. There is wonderful old vine fruit sweetness on the finish"
