Tasting Notes

Vinous – 89/100

The 2013 La Tour Blanche doesn’t entirely gel on the nose, with lime, candied orange peel and light white linen scents emerging with time. The palate is balanced with barley sugar on the entry, marmalade and dried apricot, tapering slightly towards the finish. I expected a bit more in terms of tension, so I would drink this soon.

Anticipated maturity: 2023-2030

Tasted blind. Spicy citrus and dried grasses. Rich apricot sweetness and impressive intensity and length. Power and showy, very very sweet but balanced. (JH)  [26/01/2017]

Robert Parker – 92-94

The La Tour Blanche has an introspective bouquet at first, one that is atypical of the estate. Give it some aeration and there are attractive chalky scents emerging, accompanied by citrus peel and linden. The palate is very well-balanced with a touch of pepper on the entry. This feels cohesive in the mouth, demonstrating well-judged acidity and a linear, zesty finish that leaves you with a twist of sour lemon. This is a very well-crafted La Tour Blanche, refined and intellectual. [Neal Martin, 01/04/2014]
