2013 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes

SKU #1270151 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine has intense acidity, with a tangy orange character that expresses citrus fruitiness alongside a ripe peach-apricot flavor. The aging potential is certainly there. (RV) Inner quote mark

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The La Tour Blanche has an introspective bouquet at first, one that is atypical of the estate. Give it some aeration and there are attractive chalky scents emerging, accompanied by citrus peel and linden. The palate is very well-balanced with a touch of pepper on the entry. This feels cohesive in the mouth, demonstrating well-judged acidity and a linear, zesty finish that leaves you with a twist of sour lemon. This is a very well-crafted La Tour Blanche, refined and intellectual. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A powerful, overt style, with bold apricot, nectarine and creamed peach flavors laced with bitter orange and a twinge of mirabelle plum, before more authoritative almond and maple notes emerge through the finish. Terrifically unctuous feel throughout. Best from 2018 through 2033. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2016)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very aromatic with lilac, honey and dried apricot. Nutty, creamy undertone. Full body, medium sweet and a racy and refined finish. Lovely density. Inner quote mark (2/2016)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 La Tour Blanche is wonderfully layered in the glass. Floral-infused honey, Chamomile, white flowers, dried herbs and spices flesh out in a voluptuous, textured Sauternes long on personality. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Pale yellow-gold. Superripe nose began a bit subdued but hinted at citrus fruits, grilled nuts and honey with aeration. Very rich and honeyed, showing fleshy, ripe tropical fruit and orange marmalade flavors. Finishes with very good but not outstanding length, in need of a little more acidity for better lift and cut. (ID) Inner quote mark (5/2014)
