Tasting Notes

A beautiful straw yellow colour with gold reflections. The nose immediately opens with notes of toast and nuts. With agitation, it becomes more complex with fresh hints of citrus and yellow fruits. The palate is generous and evolves on notes of dried apricots mixed with citrus fruit like lemon and mandarin. The finish is long and luxurious, leaving you with sweet cinnamon and vanilla flavours.

In the vineyard

This wine region offers a hilly landscape, where the hills seem to have been complacently exposed to the sun's rays. This explains why the Domaine de La Tour Blanche, like most of the Crus Classés of the appellation, is located on a "croupe". It rises to 60 meters above sea level. This advantage promotes a better exposure of the vines, a greater drainage of the land, and allows to benefit from very interesting soils. These former alluvial lands of the Garonne offer a gravelly surface and a clay-limestone subsoil, which give a special character to the wines produced.

In the winery

Once selected on the sorting table and pressed, the grapes will give musts in which the action of noble rot will have produced, simultaneously, a decrease in acidity as well as an increase in sugar richness. The average yield does not exceed 10 to 15 hectoliters per hectare at the Domaine de La Tour Blanche, due to a strict selection. Thus, only musts averaging between 20 and 22 degrees of potential alcohol are selected. After a night of settling, alcoholic fermentation can begin. When the desired balance between alcohol and sugar is reached, after about two to three weeks, fermentation is stopped. It is therefore this residual sugar, unfermented, that gives the wine this rich and tasty liqueur.

Food Recommendations

With a luxurious, modern and easily approachable palate, it is an ideal complement to any social or festive event: for happy hours, after meals, or as an aperitif.
