Chateau La Tour Blanche is best served at 14 degrees Celsius. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift. "The 2016 La Tour Blanche has a typically rich bouquet with clear honey, orange blossom and a touch of dried mango. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, fine tension, great detail on the finish that lingers long in the mouth." Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

The 2016 La Tour Blanche has a typically rich bouquet with clear honey, orange blossom and a touch of dried mango. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, fine tension, great detail on the finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is a superb La Tour Blanche with style and elegance. 94-96 points.

Barrel Sample. Structured and concentrated, this is a rich wine that is also fruity and packed with botrytis and acidity. Its texture and tangy edge are impressive and will certainly allow it to age. 94-96 points. Roger Voss

James Suckling

Very rich and dense with dried apples, honey and lemons as well as some spices and richness. Sweet and flavorful. Big wine on the finish. 93-94 points.

Broad, massive in scale with exuberant botrytis and then masses of acidity. Pure grapefruit syrup for the moment! Not the subtlest. Drink 2025-2040.
