Chateau La Tour de By, Medoc, Bordeaux, 2014
Out of stock
Chateau La Tour de By are an excellent property on the left bank of the river Gironde in Bordeaux. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, the rest is Merlot and a splash of Petit Verdot. It’s not looking to be a classed growth but it is a pretty big leap up from your basic claret! Having rested in cool cellars for a good number of years now, there is an element of approachability that you just don’t get with younger Bordeaux reds, a fine wine – drinking at its peak.
‘Deep ruby red in colour, with ripe dark fruit aromas of blackberries, mulberries and black cherries with some cloves and cedar spice. Still very fresh and vibrant, the palate shows of that lovely cabernet fruit, all beautifully balanced with smooth fine-grained tannins, giving the wine a wonderful texture and nice length.’
