Château la Tour Blanche Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2003
"97 points Wine Spectator: Dark gold in color already, with intense aromas of dried apricots, citrus, honey and maple syrup with lots of spice. Full-bodied, with lovely sweetness and a long, creamy peach tart, tobacco, honey aftertaste. This is pure botrytis. Best ever from here. Has an incredible finish. Best after 2010. 2,915 cases made. (3/06) (JS) 96 points Robert Parker ; Decanter 4 Stars: Nose: very concentrated richness with a freshness marked by grapefruit aromas. Taste: unctuous length and finish, honeyed; just lacks polish of top wines. (2008 onwards) Steven Tanzer 93: Enticing bright yellow-gold color. Subdued but very pure aromas of orange peel, apricot, honey and spices. Supersweet, fat and spicy; wonderfully round, chewy and unctuous. As thick and '03-like as this is, it remains fresh and lively. Not the last word in complexity but this fine-grained wine is delicious already, and finishes with superb, palate-staining persistence (7/06) Michael Schuster 18: Fresh, subtle, complex nose; full-bodied, ample, concentrated Sauternes with good balancing acidity; rich, powerful, generous, intensely sweet wine with both the complexity and definition to prevent it being excessive; an impressive heavyweight. Janice Robinson 18: Very deep-flavoured. Thick and syrupy with density, brule and botrytis character. Lots of interest. Long. Chewy. . "

External Reviews for Château la Tour Blanche Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes
Der Mund wird geprägt durch Birne und Honig. Der Wein hat ein bemerkenswertes langes Finale.
Ex-chateau bottle tasted blind in Sauternes. The La Tour Blanche 03 offers yellow flowers melted candle wax and honey on the nose with Muscat-like aromas developing in the glass. The palate is well-balanced on the entry with lemon curd and honey notes though it needs just a little more acidity to give it tension and freshness. The finish is quite linear springs no surprises and just drifts a little when you seek more tautness and race. Still this is a pleasurable if not profound La Tour Blanche. Drink now-2020+ Tasted April 2013. - Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
It is against my better judgment to taste the sweet wines of Barsac and Sauternes at such an early age, as I find they typically require at least 12 months to reveal the definition/delineation so essential in these creamy, creme brulee, and honeysuck... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 La Tour Blanche 375ml
