Chateau La Tour Blanche is situated in the heart of The Sauternes Appellation. About 40 km south of Bordeaux, this appellation covers nearly 2100 hectares and encompasses the five villages of Barsac, Bommes, Fargues, Preignac and Sauternes.. The merging of The River Garonne and its colder tributary The Ciron creates a microclimate which accounts for the autumnal climate of early morning mists followed by bright sunny days. Consequently, botrytis cinerea, a microscopic fungus, finds itself in ideal conditions to develop on the grape berries causing an evaporation of the berries' water content. This phenomenon is known as Noble Rot ("Pourriture Noble"). Read less

Rich golden color. Lots of clove, cinnamon, and orange on the nose. This delightful and delicate Sauternes has gobs of fruit on the front end complimented by laser like acidity through the mid-palate. Very enjoyable effort even as a barrel sample. Alex Lallos. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 La Tour Blanche 750ml

Good bright medium gold. Aromas of pineapple and curry powder with a strong component of vanillin oak. Very sweet and thick without coming off as heavy thanks to high-pitched orange peel and baking spice notes and to sneaky palate-energizing acidity. Not yet especially complex but very promising. The overall impression is of a more classic wine than this ch a teau has made in some recent vintages less dominated by its sweetness. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Light gold color but a wine with depth and balance. There is lovely acidity here a wine that offers fresh fruits apricot juice and deep layers of botrytis. Wine Enthusiast.
