Château La Tour Blanche
Chateau La Tour Blanche is situated in the heart of The Sauternes Appellation. About 40 km south of Bordeaux, this appellation covers nearly 2100 hectares and encompasses the five villages of Barsac, Bommes, Fargues, Preignac and Sauternes. In 1855, The Imperial Government requested that the most deserving wines of The Gironde be submitted to The Universal Exhibition in Paris so that a classification system could be established. Chateau La Tour Blanche was placed top of The 'Premiers Crus' of The Sauternes Appellation.
Chateau La Tour Blanche 2003
outstanding vintages are released, of course, often showing complexity that requires aging to manifest itself as greatness.
A luxurious opulent Tour Blanche.
"Dark gold in color already, with intense aromas of dried apricots, citrus, honey and maple syrup with lots of spice. Full-bodied, with lovely sweetness and a long, creamy peach tart, tobacco, honey aftertaste. This is pure botrytis. Best ever from here. Has an incredible finish. Best after 2010. 2,915 cases made." - Rated 97, Wine Spectator.
"2003 is a rich, sweet vintage of powerful, full-bodied wines that possess huge levels of glycerin, alcohol, and residual sugar." - Rated 96, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

the Sauternes process only takes place in exactly five tiny communes, Barsac, Preignac, Bommes, Fargues and Sauternes itself, that form Sauternes AOC. Sauternes has long been known as the magical region that makes the best sweet wines in the world. For many years, the producers in Sauternes kept their usage of noble rot a secret.
