1999 Chateau La Tour Blanche Sauternes

A sweet wine from Bordeaux, from a producer that remained very affordable for the quality it provides.

1999 Chateau La Tour Blanche Sauternes

Deep gold-amber color. A sweet nose with plenty of caramel, orange marmalade, apricots and a bit of shoe polish. Full on the palate, not as lively as we would like, but still pleasant, with plenty of caramelized apricots and peaches, a bit too sweet perhaps from not having the right acidity and a medium finish. Not the best Sauternes I had but a pleasant dessert wine nevertheless. More than one glass can be a bit too much. (89/100)
