91-93/100 Andrew Caillard MW. Medium deep slight oxidative colour. Oyster shell/ lanolin/ apricot/ pearskin aromas. Well concentrated sweet fruit flavours/ apricot/ pear/ custard flavours, crisp acidity, but al dente/ herb notes. Very elemental and rich with plenty of honey notes.
90-93/100 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com,Cropped at just 8 hectoliters per hectare (due to hail) from September 15 until October 14, the 2011 La Tour Blanche is a blend of 84% Semillon, 12% Sauvignon Blanc and 4% Muscadelle. It has a well-defined nose of white peach and almond. Even if it is missing some of the intensity of its peers, through tasting of individual lots, I believe that the bouquet will evolve by time of the final assemblage. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine balance. It has an attractive core of ripe, botrytized fruit and a linear, focused finish that dare not put a foot wrong, remaining tight and precise with a daring touch of lemongrass and lemon thyme on the aftertaste. Drink 2014-2030.
18/20 Jeannie Cho Lee MW, Decanter. There is freshness as well as depth here with long finish. Focused, linear and refreshing, in keeping with its style. More purity and less creamier in texture versus the 2009. Drink 2021-2042.
92–95/100 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator. A very flattering style, with a good range of fresh-cut pineapple, white peach, golden raisin and creamed pear notes that all glide through the lush, inviting finish.
