Chateau la Tour de By (375ml), 2004, Cru Bourgeois Supérieur, Medoc

Red, Old World, Cabernet-based from Bordeaux, France

Past wine – out of stock



The La Tour de By vineyards are located in the Médoc, close to the Gironde, and cover 75 hectares in total. The vineyard is stocked with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. There is no green harvesting, and the September harvest is achieved with the use of machine rather than by hand. The winery is committed to environmentally-friendly agricultural practices, especially in the areas of pest and disease control where the use of chemicals is avoided wherever possible.

The wine is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. It is matured in oak barriques for 12 months.

A beautiful deep ruby colour.  Attractive aromas on the nose, spicy notes and a mature, iron-like character.  Full style on the palate, quite dry, with firm tannins.  A moderate texture and a dry fruit finish.

This wine is still closed despite being 7 years old.- the equivalent to almost 15 years for a full bottle.  We suggest that you pour half a glass about half an hour to an hour before you want to drink it.  It opens up beautifully.
