2005 Chateau La Tour Blanche Sauternes 10 x 37.5cl / 14%
This lot contains ten half bottles of 2005 Château La Tour Blanche Premier Cru Sauternes.
La Tour Blanche has been a winemaking college for around a century, and produces sweet wines made from its 36 hectares of vines; 80% Sémillon, 15% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle, planted in a single parcel.
'Pale to medium lemon-gold in color, the 2005 La Tour Blanche sashays out with loads of baking spices, stone fruit preserves, and mineral notes with a waft of caramel. It fills the mouth with bright stone fruits and spices plus a racy backbone and beautiful harmony. 95/100'

The Whisky.Auction team has inspected this lot and found it to be suitable for sale. However, please note the absence of a condition statement does not imply that this lot is in perfect condition or free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing. We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults. Older bottles often contain sediment. Wines are more fragile than spirits and older wines may be listed, at our discretion, for their historical interest rather than their drinkability. We can in no way guarantee that they are still within their plateau of maturity or to the buyer’s taste.
This bottle does not appear to be leaking. While we take every care to pack bottles securely we cannot guarantee that old corks and closures will not leak in transit.
