€49.95
To produce the wine of Chateau La Tour de By, vinification takes place in a combination of temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks and oak, wood vats. Malolactic fermentation takes place in vat. The wine is aged in 30% new, French oak barrels for an average of 16 months. Production is on average close to 40,000 cases of Chateau La Tour de By per vintage. The wine has a deep dark ruby color with an impressive scent, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon at 60%, with Merlot at 35% and Petit Verdot at 5%. The taste has a powerful attack of flavour with powerful notes of fruit, black currants, and cassis. It is a tannin-rich wine with beautiful light wood tones. In short, complex, monumental wine with a great future.

Description

Before 1876, La Tour de By was called La Roque de By. The vine has been cultivated there for several centuries. Pierre Tizon, Lord of the Fief of By was the owner in 1599.

The Château remained in the family until 1725, when it fell to the Comte de Gramont, then to Monsieur de Lignac and, in 1860, to Monsieur Alfred Rubichon who built the current Château La Tour de By in 1876, which overlooks the Gironde. It was then bought by Mr. Julien Damoy who died there in 1942.
