Description

Chateau La Tour de By are one of the leading Cru Bourgeois in the Medoc. Based in the northerly edge of the Medoc, they are one of the biggest properties in the Medoc, with 109 hectares. There are two main vineyard sites – 65 hectares at Begadan situated 200 metres from the Gironde on gravelly soils and 44 hectares at St Chistoly on gravel, clay and limestone soils. The grapes for the grand vin are principally from the Begadan vineyards. Their Cabernet-dominant blend (65% Cabernet Sauvignon) spends 14 months in 20% new oak barriques.

Tasting Note

A beautiful dark ruby color, this wine gives off a very elegant nose of blueberry, blackberry accompanied by a beautiful mixture of secondary note. The palate is dense, concentrated and fresh and its tight tannic structure gives this wine a good length.
