2014 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes

SKU #1320293 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The wine shows intensity and concentration, offering ripe yellow fruits and honeyed sweetness tempered by boytritis. Initially, it seems to be all sweetness, then that essential acidity creeps in with the wonderful freshness of squeezed lemon. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2015)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Château La Tour Blanche 2014 is a blend of 82% Sémillon, 12% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle that has 130 grams per liter residual sugar, a level that might be lower than what I was expecting, though still around average for the vintage. The Sémillon is matured in wooden barrel, the other two varieties in stainless steel. It was showing a little muddled on the nose due to a dab of SO2, though that is no crime, no fault at this early stage. Putting that aside, the palate shows great potential with intense honeyed fruit, plenty of botrytis, veins of orange zest and quince that seems to “flow” through the finish. It will need some bottle age, but we all know how this Sauternes repays patience. I have my faith in this La Tour Blanche. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This streams through with glistening dried yellow apple, star fruit, white peach and mango flavors, backed by heather, honeysuckle and mirabelle plum notes. Rich for sure, but this wins on brightness, range and purity. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 La Tour Blanche has turned out beautifully. Orchard fruit, white flowers and mint are some of the signatures. Delicate, understated and lifted in style, this Sauternes offers considerable near- and medium-term appeal. The 2014 is not especially deep or complex, but it is nicely balanced and delicious. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2017)
