Professional Wine Reviews
Wine Advocate

"The 2009 La Tour Blanche is very primal on the nose with grapefruit, nectarine and apricot aromas. The palate is very well balanced, just a little oaky at the moment but with a very fine thread of acidity. Touches of fresh apricot, a hint of nougat, lime zest and white peach. Well balanced, linear at the front palate but voluminous and expanding across the mouth in every direction on the viscous, mineral-rich finish. There is so much potential here. Superb."
94-96 points
Wine Spectator

"Dense and very rich on the palate. Medium sweet, with lemon pie and meringue notes and a textured finish."

Wine Review
Description:
"The balance here is identical to Raymond Lafon: 13°8 alcohol, 140 g/l residual and 3.9 g/l total acidity, but what a difference in style. There is a menthol kind of freshness pervading the wine, giving it an almost New World, or even Alsatian touch. This higher tone of fresh fruit will presumably get penetrated by the more roasted Sémillon lots during the élevage. For the second time (07 and 09 - no '08 was made), the sweetness is less absolute, La Tour Blanche having held the record for residual in '03 and '05, and has settled down into a finer balance as a result."
