2016 Ch La Tour de By, Cru Bourgeois Superieur, Médoc HALVES 37.5cl

Stock Description


Tasting Notes

An old favourite that now regularly challenges the quality found in junior Cru Classé at a fraction of their price. This is a powerful, tannic wine with huge intensity that has rich fruit and is very long and fresh on the finish. It bears comparison with their outstanding 2010, but has the lighter fresher touch of 2016 - beautifully defined with lovely silky tannins.

Jancis Robinson 16/20; Concentrated healthy crimson. Attractive, ripe leafiness on the nose (not meagre). Good balance though slightly muted. .Drink 2024-2032
