The Bourgogne Vieilles Vignes is no simple Burgundy. Aromas of mango, lemon curd, and exotic notes of lemongrass and coconut are vividly displayed right from the cork pull. These are backed up by a complex and intense minerality and structure built around a core of ripe citrus and tropical fruits. This “mere” Bourgogne is ready to play right now and is perfectly harmonious. From 65-year-old vines, the wine is stacked and packed, drinking perfectly now. But take your time if you’d like, this wine has more than a decade left for the cellar.

As always, François makes his white wines by, first and foremost, focusing on the acidity. This, he says, is the key - allied to his other maxim of top quality grapes. All of the family's wines are made according to the quality levels of their headline property Château de La Tour, where they are all made.
