This wine is the result of a very strict selection. Due to a unique know-how it combines the expression of a great terroir and the best of the noble rot. The style of Château La Tour Blanche’s wines is characterized by a superb balance between richness and freshness, and a great aromatic complexity. In accordance with Chateau La Tour Blanche’s policy of quality, some vintages (although certified passable) are not bottled. This was the case for the 1992, 1993 and 2000 vintages.
This wine displays a straw-yellow hue with silvery tints. The nose opens out with rich notes of Bourbon vanilla and guava. Citrus aromas combined with delicate toasty notes develop after a few swirls of the glass. The palate is fat, broad, silky and unctuous with a fresh, elegant structure underpinned by citrus fruit. The combination of an attractive nose, succulent palate and fresh finish are what makes the 2017 such a remarkable vintage.
