Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator says, "Dense and very rich on the palate. Medium sweet, with lemon pie and meringue notes and a textured finish" J.S. Robert Parker also rates this highly, saying, "The 2009 La Tour Blanche is very primal on the nose with grapefruit, nectarine and apricot aromas. The palate is very well balanced, just a little oaky at the moment but with a very fine thread of acidity. Touches of fresh apricot, a hint of nougat, lime zest and white peach. Well balanced, linear at the front palate but voluminous and expanding across the mouth in every direction on the viscous, mineral-rich finish. There is so much potential here. Superb."
