Château la Tour Blanche 2009 Barrel sample White (Sauternes)
96-98 Barrel sample. A powerful, complex wine, its layers of sweetness mixed with a total dryness from botrytis. The wine is impressively rich, considerably inspired by dried fruits and spice. Certainly for aging over decades.
Château la Tour Blanche 2006 White (Sauternes)
A rich ginger marmalade of a wine, with pear and spice syrup flavors. This is dense and textured, smooth and unctuous, but beautifully lifted by acidity. Impressive and ageworthy.
Château la Tour Blanche 2005 White (Sauternes)
Extravagantly rich, this is dense and supersweet initially, just balanced with acidity. The botrytis dryness is really not here at this stage, but with its elegant creamy texture, wood flavors still very present. This is still at the very beginning of its development.
