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.

80% semillon 15% sauvignon blanc 5% muscadet. Aged for 16-18 months in stainless steel and new oak. Full and enticing on entry yet maintains refreshing balance and subtlety.

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.
