EMOTIONS DE LA TOUR BLANCHE 2019 SAUTERNES


Emotions de La Tour Blanche consists mainly of Sémillon, with smaller percentages of Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle which are harvested late and selected for botrytis. The wine is vinified and aged exclusively in stainless-steel vats for 18 months to preserve its freshness and aromatic character.

Tasting Notes:

Due to the climate of the Sauternes region, wines are produced from grapes affected by the botrytis cinerea, a “noble rot” that develops on the berries. This phenomenon creates a high concentration of natural sugar and complex aromas of spice and dried fruits.

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.

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.

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.

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.
