Chateau La Roque de By

75cl

The wines of La Roque de By owe their reputation to the pronounced terroir of the Médoc around Bégadan. This Bordeaux is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The unique conditions in this region  create a wine with a deep color and soft, ripe tannin and yet with a powerful full taste with a lot of finesse and length. Beautiful purple in colour, a little lighter bodied than La Tour de By.

Awards and/or Press Quotes
Jancis Robinson 15/20 Points, "50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot. Deep cherry red. Restained on the nose and rather dry and dusty on the palate. Could do with a bit more fruit."
Wine Enthusiast 89-91/100, "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." Roger Voss
