    The complexity of a fresh and balanced Sauternes

    The Grand Vin of the First Classified Growth Château La Tour Blanche, the Château La Tour Blanche 2018 presents all the characteristics typical of a great Sauternes.

    Located south of Bordeaux, the Château La Tour Blanche estate includes an exceptional vineyard, planted in gravel soil upon clay-limestone subsoils. The exceptional wines of Sauternes combine the three flagship varieties of the appellation: Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle. The fruit is harvested only after the noble rot has done its job, and harvest is carried out in 4 to 6 successive pickings.

    The Château La Tour Blanche 2018 is a result of rigorous selection of the finest grapes. Produced in the signature style of the property, the Château La Tour Blanche 2018 displays a beautiful aromatic complexity on a powerful palate, which is very fresh and beautifully balanced.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Pale to medium lemon-gold colored, the 2018 la Tour Blanche is a little reticent to begin, opening out to notes of honeydew melon, nectarines and baked apples with touches of lightly browned toast, allspice and powdered ginger. The palate features loads of zip and zing with bags of freshness to counter the rich fruit, finishing on a lingering gingery note.
