The 2009 La Tour Blanche is very primal on the nose with grapefruit, nectarine and apricot aromas. The palate is very well balanced, just a little oaky at the moment but with a very fine thread of acidity. Touches of fresh apricot, a hint of nougat, lime zest and white peach. Well balanced, linear at the front palate but voluminous and expanding across the mouth in every direction on the viscous, mineral-rich finish. There is so much potential here. Superb.

Dense and very rich on the palate. Medium sweet, with lemon pie and meringue notes and a textured finish.

Full and enticing on entry, yet maintains refreshing balance and subtlety. This will be a long-lived wine, and will benefit from several years of aging.
