Halves Chateau La Tour De By 2010

Product Description

Cru Bourgeois Superieur  Medoc, Begadan

Continuing in the same vein as the 2009, this is a brilliantly executed 2010 with classic dark plum and 'a point' cherries on the nose with well-integrated tannins on the palate, a big concentrated mouthfull of rich summer berries and a finely-tuned finish. Excellent wine making and very good value. Drinking well now with great succulence but also a claret that will continue to improve and develop with age, showing how Marc Pages winemaking skills are second to none.

This extensive 70 hectare estate is perfectly positioned on a group of gravely ridges overlooking the Gironde whilst the chateau's name comes from the tower that stands in the vineyards which was built in 1825 as a lighthouse to cover the river?s estuary. In the 1960?s, three friends purchased the estate and, since then, have built it up into one of the most successful and consistent of all the Crus Bourgeois. Marc Pages, who currently manages the property, makes a rigorous selection when he chooses his final cuvees to bottle, discarding anything that does not come up to scratch. These are always deep-coloured, full-flavoured and concentrated wines with a clearly defined, black-berry fruitiness.
