2003 presented great growing conditions for Chateau La Tour Blanche, producing what they suggest is the best harvest for 50 years . The wine offers floral notes on the nose with hints of lemon, followed by vanilla, candied fruits and a hint of cinnamon all topped off by a lingering finish.

Loads of botrytis and honey character and hints of lemon rind and citrus fruits. Full-bodied, very sweet ,with loads of peach tart, spice and a long, honeyed finish. This has all on the back palate. Fantastic. Best La Tour Blanche I have tasted in many, many years.
Rating : 95-100

The La Tour Blanche ‘03 offers yellow flowers, melted candle wax and honey on the nose with Muscat-like aromas developing in the glass. The palate is well-balanced on the entry with lemon curd and honey notes, though it needs just a little more acidity to give it tension and freshness. The finish is quite linear, springs no surprises, and just drifts a little when you seek more tautness and race. Still, this is a pleasurable, if not profound La Tour Blanche. Drink now-2020+

So big and round and unctuous. Yet saved by its structure. Beginning, middle and end with a toastiness. Undertow. Great stuff. Enjoy it while you may!
