Chateau La Tour Blanche's history began in the 18th century when Jean Saint-Marc du Latourblanche owned the land. They were other others but the next important owner was Frederic Frocke. He was a German and he attempts to take credit for developing sweet wines in the Sauternes and Barsac area basing off of the German Sweet wines. Although it was quite a stretch of the truth. The next prominent owner was Daniel Osiris Iffla. Although nothing significant happened during his lifetime, He bequeathed the Chateau and all the vineyards to the French Government under the condition that they create a Bordeaux Wine School on the property. This was done in 1909. Ever Since, the words "Donation Osiris" have been on the label.
Chateau La Tour Blanche is planted to 83% Semillon, 12% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle.

Lively, with a mix of almond, ginger, peach and apricot notes that have good energy throughout, backed by a honeyed edge on the finish. Nice effort for the vintage.

Rich and creamy, this opens slowly but beautifully. It has a great silky texture with a creamy character throughout, and flavours of apple tarte tatin. There is good persistency, but it's a touch heavy on the finish.

Structured and concentrated, this is a rich wine that is also fruity and packed with botrytis and acidity. Its texture and tangy edge are impressive and will certainly allow it to age.
