Winemaker Notes

The color is golden yellow, limpid and brilliant. On the nose aromas of crystallized fruits, apricot, candied lemon, very ripe white fruits are revealed with a great intensity. In the mouth the attack is very supple and rich with plenty of ripe, fresh, yellow and white fruits, and loads of candied citrus. A nice balance and a great length in mouth make this wine very complex. One can bet on a great future for this bottle.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The La Tour Blanche 2001 has long been the “insiders’ Sauternes” for the vintage. Leave the Yquem ’01 for the millionaires: load up on one of the finest recent vintages from the estate. It has a potent honeyed, frangipane and white flower-scented bouquet with subtle nougat scents in the background lending it an exotic edge. The palate is extremely well balanced with fine acidity effortlessly slicing a swathe through that unctuous, honeyed fruit. There are also understated marmalade notes with a suggestion of crème brûlée furnishing the weighty finish that goes on and on. Just don’t tell anyone how good this La Tour Blanche is...promise?

Wine Spectator
Very intense aromas of candied lemons, fresh flowers and vanilla. Full-bodied, very sweet and spicy. Long, long finish. Excellent. Best after 2009. 4,630 cases made.

Chateau La Tour Blanche, France
Chateau La Tour Blanche Winery Image

The construction of Chateau La Tour Blanche dates from the 18th Century. In 1855, The Imperial Government requested that the most deserving wines of The Gironde be submitted to The Universal Exhibition in Paris so that a classification system could be established. Chateau La Tour Blanche was placed top of The 'Premiers Crus' of The Sauternes Appellation.

But it was not until the beginning of the 20th Century that the originality of this prestigious estate's history became really apparent. The former owner, Daniel Iffla, a.k.a. "Osiris", decided to bequeath the property to the French State under the condition that a Wine School be created on site. After having accepted the donation in 1909, The Ministry of Agriculture commissioned construction of La Tour Blanche School of Viticulture and Enology in 1911.

Despite its unusual status, this wine-producing Estate is entirely managed by authentic professionals in The Wine Trade.
