The Clos, in total, is extraordinarily large by Burgundy standards, some 50 hectares, all designated grand cru – yet with many different quality levels. This family-owned domaine accounts for around 11% of the appellation, on very fine, complementary sites. Château de La Tour was constructed in 1890 by one Monsieur Baudet of Beaune. His daughter married a gifted Olympian Jean Morin and Morin’s daughters then married into the Labet and Déchelette families. François Labet, Morin’s grandson, oversees both Chateau de La Tour and the vineyards of Domaine Pierre Labet.
The family’s holdings comprise, essentially, two parcels, one close to the château itself, with another smaller holding (relatively recently replanted) higher on the slope, bordering Les Échézeaux. The vines have an average age of 67 years, with a one hectare plot planted in 1910 at their heart. The Domaine has been organic since 1992, François assiduous in ensuring the very best possible harvest, preferring strict pruning to later green harvesting. He is also a fan of whole clusters, naturally fermented which make for particularly characterful wines, when allowed to age.
