Jean-Marc Quarin
Jean-Marc Quarin
(03-1993) Yellow color. Green. Sustained. Nose with a strange undertone that some attribute to rose and others to English sweets. Raspberry note when stirred. Clean attack and very marked by this fresh raspberry aroma. Development on a round and fat structure, rather powerful towards a very well balanced finish where candied notes emerge always preceded by this raspberry aroma before the woody, toasted nuances prevail. Good persistence. Intrigued by this aroma of fresh red fruits felt at two tastings, Mr FAURE, cellar master, told me that he had already encountered this taste on the second wine, Mademoiselle DE SAINT MARC 90. He attributes it to the Sauvignon - Muscadelle blend in greater proportion than in other vintages at the expense of Semillon.

Château informations

Tour Blanche (La)

Chateau La Tour Blanche is made from traditional grapes of Sauternes, Semillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle, this wine is the result of a severe selection. Harvest Chateau La Tour Blanche conducted by "tries" requires 5-6 successive passages in the same rank, in order to obtain only the best of Noble Rot. Each vintage Chateau La Tour Blanche is vinified and aged in French oak barrels completely new, and is kept for 20 to 24 months. However, the policy of extreme quality conducted at Chateau La Tour Blanche has led him not to bottle some vintages judged only fair. This was the case for vintages 1992, 1993 and 2000. . The average annual production is 40,000 bottles. .
