Information of the vintage 1985 white Bordeaux : 4/5 Harsh winter followed by fine and dry weather throughout the spring, summer and autumn, September being one of the driest on record. In Sauternes the drought resulted in high concentrated suger levels but there wa insufficient moisture to encourage pourriture noble. Variable wines.

(07-1988) Sweet, luscious and distinctively toasty in aroma and flavor, showing the beginnings of complexity. Nicely structured, rich and long-lasting.

First cru classé of Sauternes classification, Each vintage of the 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.
