With a strong floral character, the wine exudes candied orange rind, tangerine, lemon curd and pineapple on the nose and palate. Sweet, fresh and with macadamia nut honey riding on top of all the fruits, this is a solid sweet treat.

Loads of sweet, tropical fruit, apricot, orange rind and nectarine all coated with honey. Rich, sweet and fresh, the spice and vanilla in the end add to all that sweet, lush fruit. La Tour Blanche is one of the few Bordeaux chateaux that still includes a percentage of Muscadelle in the blend. 91 - 93 Pts

Apricot, candied orange, honeysuckle, spice and pineapple, all soaked in honey let you know what you're in store for. Add in the vibrant acidity and you have a winner here. Freshness paired with sweetness, from a blend of 82% Semillon, 12% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle.

Tightly wound at the moment and not giving up much. The wine is on the mineral driven, honeyed citrus, spice and orange marmalade side of the style range, with a honeyed, lemon fresh and vanilla finish. This will probably develop well, especially for tasters looking to pair sweet wines with savory and spicy dishes.

A solid preformance in this vintage. One of the few Bordeaux chateaux to include Muscadelle in the blend, the wine serves up vanilla tinged, tropical fruits, honey, flowers and spicy scents. The finish is sweet, fresh and offers good intensity.

Quite floral, with a nice mix of yellow and orange tropical fruits, a hint of vanilla, honey, apricots and overripe pineapple. Fresh, sweet, lush and lifted, this is delicious right now and should improve with ease for at least another 10-15 years.

Lemon curd, pineapple, candied orange, spice, vanilla, mango, burnt sugar and a sprig of mint are at the center of this wine. Fresh, honeyed, spicy, and with a lemon chiffon note in the lifted finish, with a slight bitter note at the end of the finish, this is good to go. Drink from 2022-2040.

Citrus, vanilla, apricot, nectarine, pear and honey scents produce the aromatics. With ample concentration and acidity, the wine ends with a rich layer of spice and honey coated tropical fruits.

Thick, rich, sweet, fat and intense, the wine displays a beautiful, nutty, tropical fruit, pineapple, apricot, vanilla custard and honeyed character. Sweet, juicy and delicious, there is good length found in the finish.

On the orange tropical side of the style range with loads of sweet, honey-coated apricots, spice and flowers, the wine balances all that juicy, luscious, honeyed sweetness with the right amount of racy acidity. This is drinking just great today.

This lusty beauty of a wine is packed with ripe and over ripe tropical fruit drenched in honey, pineapple, apricot, vanilla and spice. Fat, rich and lush, there is good depth and enough brightness to keep the wine vibrant.

Starting to fade, the fruit is lighter than I recall. There is more complexity in the honeyed, tropical, apricot and orange nose, than you are going to find in the medium bodied palate and its bright, citrus and apricot, sweet finish. This is not a wine to age further.

This is a nice Sauternes that is clearly at, or slightly past its peak. The sweet honey fruit and rich textures are fading. I'd drink any remaining bottles sooner than later.

Amber in color, with the dark chocolate covered orange notes that pop up in very old Sauternes, the wine was still sweet, fresh, and lively, with loads of butterscotch, caramel, burnt vanilla, apricot and orange rind, with honeysuckle from start to finish.

More acid than fruit, with a distinctive orange, tangerine and not fully ripe apricot accent, this was clearly on the downhill side of life.
