2016 Château La Tour de By
From a half bottle. This go-to Bordeaux in a attractive price range, usually delivers the goods, see previous notes below. The 2016 offers up a cool, restrained nose with notes of red and black currants, chocolate biscuits and gravel. Very nice.
The taste is medium bodied with notes of red currants, cold coffee, fried bread and fir wood. Some tannins in the finish that needs a couple of years to soften. Very, very good. 5+ years.
