    Cuvée presentation

    Clos-de-Vougeot from Château de la Tour is a superb wine. The decision to use whole bunch fermentations has been a wise one, adding even more complexity. The nose has many facets and evokes cherry and spice. The palate has a beautiful vigorous quality and is highly concentrated but still very precise. This wine needs at least eight years to open up to its full potential.
