Decanter   92

Showing concentrated layers of fleshy mango and tinned peaches, this manages to maintain its exotic intensity without being dragged down by its own weight. There's a lift and zip brought in by some fresh mint notes, and the palate is silky and sweet. The vintage has denied it the acidity to elevate it to greater heights, but it's a good wine in 2017.

James Suckling   92-93

Very spicy with lots of dried-mango, apple and pear character. Full-bodied and very sweet and flavorful on the finish.

Vinous   93-95

The 2017 La Tour Blanche has a very elegant and controlled bouquet, perhaps atypically for an estate that usually produces one of the more decadent Sauternes aromatics (not that I am complaining, for the record). The palate is very intense with layers of pure botrytized fruit, clear honey laced with orange zest and mandarin that segue into a dense, rich but fresh finish that is pure botrytized joy. Excellent.
