Impressive density of fruity here with caramel, dried lemons, apricots and honey. Full yet reserved and beautiful. Wonderful length. One of the Sauternes of the vintage. Rating: 96 Points; James Suckling

This is rich, exuding delicious sweetness, with a core of dense botrytis. An opulent, ripe apricot flavor accompanies the bittersweet orange and mirabelle fruit notes. The acidity, sweetness and concentration promise a great future for this wine. Rating: 95 Points; Wine Enthusiast 
 
The 2009 La Tour Blanche is very primal on the nose with grapefruit, nectarine and apricot aromas. The palate is very well balanced, just a little oaky at the moment but with a very fine thread of acidity. Touches of fresh apricot, a hint of nougat, lime zest and white peach. Well balanced, linear at the front palate but voluminous and expanding across the mouth in every direction on the viscous, mineral-rich finish. There is so much potential here. Superb.

There's a delightful freshness to this wine, with its 142 grams of residual sugar balanced by acidity. Lovely, hauntingly elegant Sauternes, with flavours of apple, pear and quince, well-handled oak integration and a hint of orange zest. The wine is almost drinkable now, but is well worth buying for the long run. 10+ years. Rating: 95 Points; Tim Atkin MW

The nose is fleshy packed out with rich ripe fruit. The sweetness is there on the palate, lush sensuous fleshy. Behind all of this ripe power is freshness, lime mingling with lemon and apple lifting the flavours and balancing. The hints of Noble Rot add some peppery spice to the finish. Drink 2020-2050. Rating: 92-96 Points; Derek Smedley MW

My favourite in this group because it adds to the glorious constitution of the vintage a very special element of finesse and subtlety, sublime aftertaste. Score: 19.0/20.0; James Lawther MW, Decanter.com
