2016 La Roque de By, Médoc

SKU #1374535 89-91 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is a firmly structured wine, dominated by solid tannins. Ample acidity and fruit concentration suggests it should age well, and be ready to drink from 2022.  (4/2017)


 The 2016 La Roque de By has an understated bouquet that demands encouragement: blackberry, graphite with a touch of stewed black tea. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, quite firm with good body and a solid finish that suggests this Cru Bourgeois will age for a decade, possibly more. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London. (NM)  (10/2018)

The second wine of La Tour de By, it is showing a level of complexity that is rarely found in second wines. There're floral notes, and sweet plums, complicated by leather notes and exotic spices. This is for sure a great buy, not only to drink soon, but for cellaring for 10 years or more.

This 50/50 Cab/Merlot blend is my pick for top deal in red wine in the entire store right now. The red and blue berry fruit is bright, expressive and well integrated with notes of thyme and other spices. The tannins and well-balanced acidity lend a really nice texture and drinkability. The finish is pleasant and long.
