"Pale lemon-gold colored, the 2018 Bastor-Lamontagne opens with provocative lemon marmalade, musk perfume and orange blossoms scents with hints of fresh ginger and spice cake. The palate offers mouth-coating citrus and spice flavors with a silken texture and balanced freshness, finishing savory." robertparker.com
Gold colour with emerald highlights; it is a fruity and a rich white wine with a great range of aromas. Its bouquet evokes butter and brioche with notes of lemon, grapefruit and a touch of white flowers. The smoothness comes during its evolution to create a harmonious and solid wine.
A lucid amber hue. A rather muted nose: honey, a touch of marmalade, quince. Not much lift, touch of undergrowth. The palate is well-balanced, a little bit of heat. Reminds me of a Barsac. Still quite tight, apricot, orange zest, ginger. Burnt sugar on the spirity finish.
Chalk dust, almond and a touch of peach emerging after some time in glass. The palate is fresh with good weight and good level of botrytis. Notes of honey and quince with good fresh acidity. Floral, peachy finish. A very attractive Sauternes.
South/south-east exposure. The soils are very sloping and the sunshine is permanent and exceptional, so the grapes are quickly matured.

The Château Tour Léognan White is a wine for pleasure, a blend characterized by the Sauvignon which confers on it a dynamic blend of citrus notes and a full and elegant palate, all well balanced by the round, rich texture of the Semillon.
