CHATEAU LA TOUR DE BY MEDOC CRU BOURGEOIS SUPERIEUR 2015
Hailing from Bordeaux, France. Chateau la Tour de by Medoc Cru Bourgeois Superieur is classified as a Cru Bourgeois since 1932 and a member of the prestigious Union des Grands crus de Bordeaux, shows some dominant characteristics. This wine reflects ripeness in the vineyard and enormous concentration.
Vinified in barrels (with one third renewed each year), these deep coloured, richly aromatic wines have excellent ageing potential. They are some of the Médoc's most powerful wines, but retain plenty of fruitiness as they mature in the bottle. A blend with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. Plum, stone fruit and tobacco on the nose with elegant, understated oak. Opulent, yet well-balanced on the palate with round, powerful tannins and a delious, long after taste.
Chateau La Tour de By can be decanted for an average of 1 hour or so. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau La Tour de By is usually better with at least 1-3 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau La Tour de By offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 2-9 years of age after the vintage.
Another reason why we love this wine - This bottle is super versatile with food. Poultry, red meats, hard cheese. Even strawberry and chocolate desserts!
