Château La Tour de By, Cru Bourgeois, Médoc, Bordeaux, France, Magnum, 2018
Grapes: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot aged in oak for 12 months (25% new wood). Average vine age: 40 years. Yield: 50hl/ha
"Deep cherry red with smudgy rim. Open and fragrant with cassis and light notes of cedar and spice. Archetypal Cabernet-dominant left-bank bordeaux on the nose. On the palate, lots of tannin tension and an elegant structure even if it needs time. Not a blockbuster but attractive for its balance and potential elegance. Cedary, lead-pencil aftertaste. (JH)"
16/20 points, Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, October 2020
