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.

This consistently fabulous Sauternes estate takes the utmost care in the vineyards and the cellar, restricting yields and sorting meticulously. Lesser grapes are declassified to the estate's second label and all that they produce sees the inside of a barrel for at least one year. A bottle to buy with confidence.

Intense aromas of dried pineapple, honey and tropical fruit. Full-bodied and superdense, with masses of fruit. It goes on and on. Seductive. Fantastic. Could be the 2003 in the remake. Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 La Tour Blanche 750ml

JS: 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.

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.

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>
