Château La Tour de By

Château La Tour de By was acquired at the beginning of the sixties by Monsieurs Lapallu, Cailoux and Pages. In 1999, Monsieur Pages became the sole owner. Currently, his youngest son, Frederic Le Clerc manages the Château. This 94 hectares estate is situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde estuary and possesses a favorable microclimate for the vines. Plantings are dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (65%) and Merlot (30%), with Cabernet Franc (3%) and Petit Verdot (2%); the average age of the vines is 40 years old. The wines are fermented in tanks before aging in oak barrels for 16 months (30% new barrels). Château Tour de By produce classic Medoc wines, which offer charming short to medium term drinking.
