75cl * Bordeaux, France
We have always been charmed by the traditional wines of Tour de By at Taurus. This has all the richness of the 2009s and yet retains the typical stalky blackcurrant character that you may already know and love. The fine, almost smoky tannins are nicely integrated already, suggesting this is well into its stride and drinking nicely now.
Drinking window: to 2023+

This bottle is part of a wine cellar purchased from a highly respected Master of Wine (MW) with whom I have worked for many years and who is recognised as one of the world’s Italian wine experts. It has been stored in the MW’s own cellar or climate-controlled storage and I have every belief that it is in tip-top condition. However, as with all purchases of this nature there has to be an element of caveat emptor to proceedings – as such, we will not be able to offer refunds or returns on this item.
