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.

Very light straw. Lots of and lots botrytis, very rich and nerveux and exciting, Long live the French Chambre d'Agriculture! About 80% botrytised grapes. Serious stuff. 18/20

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

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

Rich golden color. Lots of clove cinnamon and orange on the nose. This delightful and delicate Sauternes has gobs of fruit on the front end complimented by laser like acidity through the mid-palate. Very enjoyable effort... Rich golden color. Lots of clove cinnamon and orange on the nose.
