La Tour Blanche 2007 375ml

In recent years this wine has hovered between four and five stars. This time there is outstandingly aromatic intensity, but the question is whether the evident citrus fruit acidity is enough to ensure the enormous richness and sweetness is in balance. Time will tell. 4 stars. Score: 18 Decanter Magazine, Decanter.com
 
The mix of lemon and grapefruit give freshness on the nose and this citrus character is there at the start of the palate. There is a richer feel towards the mid palate more apricot and peach, the sweetness lending some flesh towards the back. The fresher, lighter fruit mix shows more strongly on the finish, candied lime and lemon peel. Score: 87-91 Derek Smedley MW
 
Mid honeyed gold. Rather loose on the nose. Big and sweet and yet there is a little streak of green acidity too. But a bit aggressive on the palate. And pretty soft and loose Score: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com
 
Loads of ripe fruit in this one, with pineapple, mango and honey undertones. Full-bodied, thick and layered. Medium sweet. Spicy, fruity aftertaste. 90 -93 Score: 90-93 James Suckling, WineSpectator.com
 
This is rather blowsy on the nose and lacks some lift. The palate is better with some attractive minerally fruit, touches of passion fruit and white peach but lacking a little length and vigour. This is a little underwhelming given the quality of other vintages of La Tour Blanche. Perhaps just a little too much residual sugar on the finish? Drink 2010-2020. Tasted April 2008 Score: 86-88 Wine Advocate
