La Tour de By
I went poking about for a bottle of red and plucked this off my shelf. To tell the truth I wasn't sure about whether to save if for a 'special' occasion, so I double-checked with my sommelier (a.k.a. google).
She told me it was best to drink 2007-2012. Good thing I checked, I would hate to have had it slip past the best-before date. Live for the present!
2003 is a recommended vintage, too. What a happy coincidence.
I'm feeling a bit guilty now, maybe I should have planned a meal around this bordeaux, it's so scrumptious. Lamb is a recommended match. So is ossau-iraty or roquefort cheese... I'll have to pick some up on my way home from work tomorrow.
Beautiful garnet colour, nice legs, great dimension, and amazing finish!
