Drinking wine pretty frequently for avg. standards, by any means, for about a year, and starting to try some Bordeaux.........I notice why American Merlot is frowned upon to an extent, when it's compared to Merlot around the world, specifically from Saint Emilion. Merlot is nothing like Cabernet Sauv. rather it tends to pack a punch in my opinion more in the mid-palate. Merlot flavors are more elusive therefore more subtle therefore, more elegant. This particular wine eventhough from the legendary 2005 vintage lacks something that I don't think even time will provide. Delicious for what it is. Great entry level price for Bourdeaux, but scratching the potential of what the prestige is all about.

with lots of sweetness. There's also loads of clove and other spices. Not as exciting as from barrel

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 o... Wine Enthusiast. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 La Tour Blanche 375ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: This is a luxurious opulent Tour Blanche, one of the stars of the vintage with<br/>a singing 147g of residual sugar - full yellow in colour, with a ripe, rich<br/>botrytis bouquet, thickly textured on the palate, beautifully sensuous and<br/>exceptionally long. A star performance.

<p> <p>This Intense, deep garnet Bordeaux is 80% Merlot and 20%&nbsp;Cabernet Sauvignon &nbsp;has a smooth upfront, powerful and rich flavor.Best if consumed &nbsp;between 2010&nbsp;and 2017, with barbecue or casserole.</p> </p>
