2017 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 93

With distinctive orange and tangerine accents on a superfluity of tropical fruits, there is a richness here that is tough to resist. The sultry, fruit-filled finish with its refreshing attitude is incredible. La Tour Blanche is one of the few Bordeaux cha

2015 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 92

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

2014 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 92

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.

2013 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 90

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.

2011 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 92

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.

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.

2007 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 93

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.

2003 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 93

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.

1990 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 89

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.

1937 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 94

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.

1935 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 83

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