This wine is just beginning to show its possibilities. It has a dry botrytis character along with lemon and other citrus fruits. They are packed in a sweet dried-apricot and lemon-jelly flavored texture. The wine will age impressively. (RV)
Shows energy and intensity with dried apple, pineapple character. Medium to full body, very sweet and a spicy, botrytis aftertaste. Excellent.
The 2015 La Tour Blanche has a noticeably deeper color than the other barrel samples that I tasted. The bouquet is quite intense, although I feel that it does not quite have the complexity of its peers. The palate is much better: smooth and unctuous on the entry, layers of honeyed fruit tinged with peach and almond, delivering a very composed and powerful finish that lingers long in the mouth. Give this 3-4 years in bottle until the aromatics find their voice. (NM)
Big and honeyed, with vanilla, tropical fruit and caramel hints – at once concentrated and complex. La Tour Blanche hardly misses a beat these days.
The 2015 La Tour Blanche is powerful , dense and immediate. A rush of apricot jam, honey, orange preserves, mint and white flowers melds together. Unctuous, deep and beautifully layered, the 2015 is a terrific Tour Blanche. (AG)
Very expressive, with nectarine, peach and mirabelle plum fruit flavors streaming through, lifted by a bright honeysuckle note and backed by a long honey- and acacia-fueled finish. On the richer side, but has the drive for balance. (JM)
