1996 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes (375ml)

SKU #1003277 Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark A little curranty and even a hint of rot. But there is lots of interest and energy here. And masses of sweetness – well balanced by acidity. Only just becoming ready to drink. Very heady and peachy. Inner quote mark (2/2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The light-style 1996 possesses a light golden color, moderate sweetness, and a flinty, citrusy, buttery nose with evidence of coconut, pears, oranges, and pineapples. In the mouth, it is medium-bodied and stylish with considerable elegance. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/1999)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Straw-gold. Peach, pear eau de vie and mint on the cool, slightly high-toned nose. Good tangy flavor intensity, texture and weight. Offers less weight and botrytis character than the '97 but conveys an impression of chewy extract. Finishes spicy and long, with a note of toffee. Inner quote mark (7/1999)
