Tasting Notes and Scores
The Chateau La Tour Blanche has a complex bouquet with scents of grapefruit, honey, apricot and white flowers. The palate is very well-balanced, with a great sense of tension and poise, and notes of citrus lemon, lime, dried honey and a touch of marmalade that lead to a tightly wound, focused, almost Germanic finish. This is intriguing Sauternes that should repay considerable cellaring.
Freshly defined, rich middleweight; very sweet, round and flowing, with a delicious and fine purity of fruit, but without the projection and aromatic botrytis scope and complexity that this wine usually has at this level of richness; nice fruit length. Good.... but not its usual excitement. 2014-25+ [M. Schuster Bordeaux Mar/Apr 2011]
Gorgeous apricot, ginger, green fig and honey flavors show lots of density, with a sweet, rich finish. A big one in the making. â€”J.M.
Sweet flowery nose with honeysuckle, white peach and candied lemon peel. This Sauternes is very sweet and well-structured on the palate with a good acidity and pure white fruit. Elegant and charming. Drink now or hold.
