Another beautiful wine from this estate, the 2019 La Tour Blanche has a medium-gold hue as well as a classic Sauternes bouquet of honeyed peach, white flowers, ginger, and tangerines. Rich and medium to full-bodied, it displays a terrific balance between its sweetness and acidity, a great mid-palate, and certainly no shortage of length on the finish. - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2019 La Tour Blanche was cropped at 6.87hl/ha through 3 tries in the vineyard between 18 September and 21 October. It has a well defined bouquet, perhaps less ostentatious than some vintages but replete with honey, quince and saffron aromas. The palate is fresh on the entry with lemon rind and orange zest. Tangy marmalade and walnut notes bring up the rear. Excellent. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media

Pale lemon-yellow in color, the 2019 la Tour Blanche has the most tantalizing nose of candied lemon peel, pink grapefruit, fresh pineapple and green guava with suggestions of lime leaves, orange blossoms and honeycomb. The palate is electrically charged with vibrant citrus and tropical flavors and a racy backbone, giving way to a satiny texture and loads of tightly wound layers, finishing with a lingering zesty kick. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

Pink grapefruit and citrus hits you right off on the nose, a lovely mix of sweet and tart. The silkiness of the palate becomes clear from the mid palate onwards and the Sémillon is very much dominant in terms of texture and succulence. - Jane Anson, Decanter

A tight, subtle new Sauternes with sliced apples, cooked pears and dried peaches. Lots of spices. It’s medium-to full-bodied, vivid and energetic. Not the most intense wine, but nicely crafted. A blend of 90% semillon, 9.5% sauvignon blanc and 0.5% muscadelle. - James Suckling
