The La Tour Blanche 2001 has long been the “insiders’ Sauternes” for the vintage. Leave the Yquem ’01 for the millionaires: load up on one of the finest recent vintages from the estate.

Leave the Yquem ’01 for the millionaires: load up on one of the finest recent vintages from the estate. It has a potent honeyed, frangipane and white flower-scented bouquet with subtle nougat scents in the background lending it an exotic edge. The palate is extremely well balanced with fine acidity effortlessly slicing a swathe through that unctuous, honeyed fruit. There are also understated marmalade notes with a suggestion of crème brûlée furnishing the weighty finish that goes on and on. Just don’t tell anyone how good this La Tour Blanche is...promise? - Neal Martin

...Pale yellow-gold. Reticent nose hints at caramel and vanilla. Fat and high-toned with superripe unctuous flavors of candied yellow fruits and honey. At once chewy and lively and hiding more than it's showing today... ...Pale yellow-gold. Reticent nose hints at caramel and vanilla.
