La Tour Blanche 750m 2005

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.

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

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.

Subtle aromas of honey lemon peel cream vanilla and apple pie follow through to a thick palate with lots of sweetness. There s also loads of clove and other spices. Not as exciting as from barrel but still outstanding. Best after 2011. 2 915 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator.

Yellow-gold color. Sexy aromas of ripe apricot pear honey and nutty oak show a distinctly exotic side. Then supersweet and concentrated on the palate showing more sheer sweetness and power than any particular flavor component. Almost sugary on the finish but long and quite unevolved. Today this gives the impression of being a wine with too much of everything: I d lay it down for a decade. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
