Dark gold in color already with intense aromas of dried apricots citrus honey and maple syrup with lots of spice. Full-bodied with lovely sweetness and a long creamy peach tart tobacco honey aftertaste. This is pure botrytis. Best ever from here. Has an incredible finish. Best after 2010. 2915 cases made.

Enticing bright yellow-gold color. Subdued but very pure aromas of orange peel apricot honey and spices. Supersweet fat and spicy; wonderfully round chewy and unctuous. As thick and '03-like as this is it remains fresh... Enticing bright yellow-gold color. Subdued but very pure aromas of orange peel apricot honey and spices. Supersweet fat and spicy; wonderfully round chewy and unctuous. As thick and '03-like as this is it remains fresh and lively. Not the last word in complexity but this fine-grained wine is delicious already and finishes with superb palate-staining persistence.

18/20 So big and round and unctuous. Yet saved by its structure. Beginning, middle and end with a toastiness. Undertow. Great stuff. Enjoy it while you may!

Ex-chateau bottle tasted blind in Sauternes. The La Tour Blanche ‘03 offers yellow flowers, melted candle wax and honey on the nose with Muscat-like aromas developing in the glass. The palate is well-balanced on the entry... Ex-chateau bottle tasted blind in Sauternes. The La Tour Blanche ‘03 offers yellow flowers, melted candle wax and honey on the nose with Muscat-like aromas developing in the glass. The palate is well-balanced on the entry with lemon curd and honey notes, though it needs just a little more acidity to give it tension and freshness. The finish is quite linear, springs no surprises, and just drifts a little when you seek more tautness and race. Still, this is a pleasurable, if not profound La Tour Blanche.
