Tour Blanche, La Sauternes Blend 1996

There is a nice yellow coloring to this wine. It was almost golden. This Tour blanche Blend was sweet but not too sweet. It had a medium body and smells of coconut, butter, and citrus.

I had fruit salad with this wine and it went wonderfully

Somewhat disappointing
Score: 88 points
Drink by: 3 to 7 years
Sampled 7/30/06. The wine simply lacked the necessary depth of flavor and body one expects from high quality Sauternes (although La Blanche is generally more a price-point buy rather than a ratings points buy). The flavors that did come through were some lemons and not fully ripe tangerines. The finish was round but a bit short. For those that don`t like many big name Sauternes because the sugar and body is too big and overwhelming, you`ll probably enjoy this wine more than I did.
