The finesse and refreshing complexity of a Sauternes Premier Grand Cru Classé

The estate

Built in the 18th century, Chateau La Tour Blanche is currently home to the La Tour Blanche School of Viticulture and Oenology. Ranking as a Sauternes Premier Grand Cru Classé in the 1855 classification, Chateau La Tour Blanche, which has been owned by the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region since 2010, now enjoys an educational purpose while contributing to the history of fine Sauternes wines.

The vineyard

Chateau La Tour Blanche is a Sauternes wine made from a 40-hectare vineyard. This terroir benefits from the influence of morning fog, which favors the development of Botrytis cinerea, the fungus that gives rise to noble rot. Chateau La Tour Blanche produces elegant wines, in its shady and tranquil cellars, that boast the characteristics of the appellation.

The year 2021 marks the official start of the estate's conversion to organic farming.

The vintage

The vineyard was affected by a major frost during spring and then strong mildew pressure during the summer season. The manual harvest was carried out from September 29th to October 30th in three successive selections. Despite particularly low yields (1.2 hl/ha), this vintage gave rise to a wine that harmoniously combines freshness and power.

Vinification and aging

The wine is aged in new barrels.

The blend

Semillon (69.5%)
