1988 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes

SKU #970076 92 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1988 exhibits superb richness, plenty of botrytis, creamy, honeyed, tropical fruit (pineapples galore), wonderfully integrated, toasty oak, crisp acidity, and a rich, full-bodied, long finish. (RP) Inner quote mark (1/1998)

Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Reticent aromas of almond, petrol and brown spices opened to show a honeyed richness and good botrytis character. Very rich, fat and honeyed in the mouth; showed a grapefruity freshness with aeration. Still, this expansive wine seems rather low in acidity. Finishes quite suave, and a bit less sweet than the middle palate would suggest. This was the turnaround vintage, under the management of Jean-Pierre Jausserand. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/1998)
