    A generous white from Sauternes

    Chateau La Tour Blanche is a 1st Classified Growth from the Sauternes appellation covering 40 hectares. The 2016 vintage comes from a blend of 83% Semillon, 14% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle.

    The large amount of rainfall from January to June did not present 2016 as a great vintage. The drought from mid-June to mid-September allowed the vines the vegetative cycle they needed. Thanks to the rain on September 13th and 30th, the grapes finally developed. Harvest occurred from the end of September until October 28th.

    La Tour Blanche 2016's golden colour is a huge pleasure. The nose is discreet with scents of toasts and nuts. After aeration, it becomes more complex with fresh fragrances of citrus fruits and yellow fruits. The attack is generous and combines the delicacy and irresistibility of dried apricots married with touches of candied lemons and mandarins. This fresh and persistent wine reveals a final with subtle touches of cinnamon.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Pale lemon-gold colored, the 2016 la Tour Blanche gives flamboyant tropical layers of mango, guava and passion fruit with hints of clover honey, beeswax, nutmeg, jasmine and preserved ginger. Big, rich, concentrated and seductively oily in the mouth, the palate is unashamedly decadent, and it finishes very long and spicy.
