Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com 17

Tasted blind. Pale gold colour. Slightly peppery, with ginger and heather honey on the nose. Very youthful, with precise, vibrant fruit and excellent drive. Not overly broad, it is instead deep and long. A vertical wine with excellent ageing potential. (TP) [14/09/2021]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2040

Robert Parker 94

The 2017 la Tour Blanche gives up pronounced lime cordial, grapefruit and apricot preserves notes with orange blossoms, ginger and candied peel. The palate offers wonderful concentration, silken texture and bold freshness, finishing with fantastic length. [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 03/01/2020]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2044
