Gorgeous apricot ginger green fig and honey flavors show lots of density with a sweet rich finish. A big one in the making. -J.M.

The La Tour Blanche 2010 has an outstanding bouquet with beautifully defined aromas of dried honey, peach skin, melted wax and butterscotch – linear, taut, and focused in keeping with the vintage. The palate is beautifully proportioned with that thread of acidity interwoven through the botrytized fruit. This is a Sauternes with volume and dimension and yet I am seeking more persistency on the finish, because it feels like the job is done too early. This is a good wine that dare I say, could have been even better with more ambition. - NEAL MARTIN

Planted to gravel with clay-limestone subsoil. Tight and not yielding much at this point the nose does show bright citrus notes candied lemon peel and a light hint of botrytis on the nose. The palate with medium weight offers good acids that carry the light citrus fruit which lead to spicy botrytis on the clean quick finish. Enjoy through 2030.
