Halves Château La Tour De By 2010

Halves Chteau La Tour De By 2010

Ref: A938610

Cru Bourgeois Supérieur Médoc, Bégadan

Continuing in the sam 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 Pagès 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 château’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 Pagès, who currently manages the property, makes a rigorous selection when he chooses his final cuvées 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.

Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
A fantastic white Burgundy from Jean-Marc Morey, Côte de Beaune, which exhibits a purity of rich fruit (coupled with a mouth-tingling freshness) that is rare to find.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Doucinello 2011
Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
