TOB exclusive import: Chateau Bourdon la Tour 2016 Cotes de Bordeaux
3. Château Bourdon La Tour 2016 from Côtes de Bordeaux.
60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon.
This is a complete screamer! Stunning, lifted berry fruit aromatics but it's the palate that is the real star: sappy, incisive, elegant, fresh, firm, long, and unstoppably drinkable. Very full but truly poised. Quite a remarkable little wine. The stature of the palate is unusually intense and compelling for a wine of this price - and you can thank the 40% Cabernet for that!
Drink now to 2028.
