2016 Château La Tour de By Heritage Marc Pages  (Médoc) 89

Using 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, this wine is a parcel selection. It is tannic and classic in style with a peppery, cassis fruit center but it needs time for the cassis to soften and come around. 89 Points

2005 Château La Tour de By  (Médoc) 87

Fully mature, this crowd pleasing style of wine was made from a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Still showing good color, the wine offers scents of licorice, smoke, black cherry, earth and tobacco. The round finish leaves with dark, red fruits and thyme. The wine was simply popped and poured. 87 Points
