Reviews for 2007 La Tour Blanche Sauternes Blend
Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, June 2010
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.

Good bright medium gold. Aromas of pineapple and curry powder with a strong component of vanillin oak.

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. Tasted January 2011. -Neal Martin
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2010
Sweet lemon and apple aromas with floral honey. Full-bodied and very sweet with a spicy almost tangy finish of honey. Rich and layered. Best after 2014
