Château La Tour-Blanche is a small estate producing only 4,500 cases each vintage of its delectable sweet white made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. One of the first vineyards to be granted Premier Cru status, it has only been in recent years that the wines have begun to live up to the classification. With the 2007 threatening to be the best La Tour-Blance produced, it it definitely one for Sauternes collectors.

Light gold color, but a wine with depth and balance. There is lovely acidity here, a wine that offers fresh fruits, apricot juice and deep layers of botrytis.

Tasted single blind against its peers. I have always felt that I was mean to the La Tour Blanche when I first tasted it out of barrel, principally because of the excessive level of residual sugar. There is just a touch of reduction on the nose but it opens up nicely. The palate is very classy: a hell of a lot of fruit concentration and layer upon layer of botrytized fruit. It is not exactly subtle and is missing some finesse, whilst the finish is long and persistent, disguising its sucrosity well.

Sweet lemon and apple aromas, with floral honey. Full-bodied and very sweet, with a spicy, almost tangy finish of honey. Rich and layered.
