Château La Tour Cordouan, Médoc, Bordeaux
Tour de France...
Tastes like: Strawberry. Raspberry. Red Plums, Bramble. Dried Fruit. Cigar Box. Toast.
The 14th century Cordouan lighthouse featured on the label is located out at sea - North of the Medoc spit - and is still manned and operational, guarding the entrance to the historic Gironde Estuary.
Grapes come from a variety of soils giving a pleasant complexity and and 12 month in oak adds a rich toastiness.
We were really impressed by this quintessential Medoc which is a 50/50 split of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and it's already showing developed characteristics from time in bottle and is drinking brilliantly between now and 2024.
