Château La Tour Blanche 2021 – Sauternes 1er Cru Classé

Château La Tour Blanche 2021 – Sauternes 1er Cru Classé

The nose is fresh, fruity, racy and shows elegance and a nice minerality. There are notes of fresh/juicy peach, yuzu and more lightly fresh citrus, combined with fine touches of fresh lychee, racy minerality and discreet hints of yellow berries. The palate is fruity, discreetly tight and demonstrates juiciness, an acidic structure, minerality, good definition, a certain gourmandize, tension, substance and a certain richness. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of crushed apple, crushed peach and, more lightly, berries in syrup, combined with hints of fresh/chunky pear, as well as roasted pineapple and a hint of quince. Good length. Nice persistence. Subtle hints of fresh verbena, almond and a discreet hint of eucalyptus in the background.
