Description

A delicious, generous and smooth Sauternes Premier Grand Cru Classé

The estate

Built in the 18th century, Château La Tour Blanche is today home to the La Tour Blanche School of Viticulture and Oenology. A Sauternes First Classified Growth of 1855, the Château La Tour Blanche has belonged to the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region since 2010 and has now dedicated itself to education, while also continuing to contribute to the history of the great wines of Sauternes.

The vineyard

The 40 hectares of the estate are located on a terroir subject to the influence of the morning mists generated by the two rivers, favouring the development of botrytis cinerea, the fungus that gives rise to noble rot. Château La Tour Blanche produces elegant Sauternes wines in the shady tranquillity of its cellars, bearing the colours of the appellation.

The vintage

For the Premier Grand Cru Classé of Sauternes Château La Tour Blanche, the 2019 vintage demanded the full attention of the technical teams, standing as a great example of the know-how required for the production of sweet wines from high-quality fruit. The estate recorded an excellent harvest for the dry white wines. On the sweet side, noble rot was long overdue, due to a dry September. The first trials began on September 18 and 19 and ended on October 21. The last picking was the most demanding, requiring an extremely rigorous selection of the fruit. For this 2019 vintage, the Château La Tour Blanche required 3 passages in total and revealed a yield of 6.87 hl / ha. The richness of the berries and their acidity as well as their fragrances thus reward the masterful undertaken by the estate to lead this vintage to excellence.

Blend

Sémillon (90%)
Sauvignon (9,5%)
Muscadelle (0,5%).



Characteristics and tasting tips for Château La Tour Blanche 2019

Tasting

Nose
Intense and very aromatic, the nose is characterised by citrus fragrances and delicate vanilla notes.


Palate
The attack in the mouth is fresh thanks to beautiful notes of citrus zest before giving way to a delicious and smooth texture. The palate is enveloped with bergamot, candied lemon and notes of dried figs. A wonderful acidity and notes of roasted almonds are gradually revealed, giving relief until a lingering finish. A demanding vintage, 2019 nevertheless promises to be a great success for the estate.
