90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine
"While juicy Merlot dominates this wine, the structure comes from the perfumed Cabernet Sauvignon that brings out the tannins, while the fruit is packed with blackberry flavors. This ripe wine needs to develop over the next few years. Drink from 2017."
60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot
It was back in 1890 that the Roses family and Château Haut Bellevue started their story. The estate now boasts 16 hectares of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot on magnificent soils composed exclusively of light gravel on the stretch of higher land between Margaux and Saint Estèphe on the banks of the Gironde that has built the reputation of the Médoc. Corinne and Alain Roses have succeeded in getting the very essence out of their land.

ROBERT PARKER: 87
An excellent blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, this wine offers attractive value for its superb quality. The wine has a dense ruby/purple color, nice cedary blackcurrant fruit, medium body and surprisingly soft, well-integrated tannins. This sleeper of the vintage should drink nicely for 5-8 years.| eRobertParker.com.April, 2015
Chateau La Tour-de-By is a 74 hectare property overlooking the Gironde at Begadan planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. The wines are very robust with classic earthy Medoc fruit and can age quite happily for 10-12 years if cellared correctly.
