Reserved for this visit a couple of hours before, happy the lady could accommodate us. We had a vineyard visit and the lady who spoke very good English, is very knowledgeable and passionate about her wines. We then had a vertical of 3 special vintage and the wines were all amazing. Loved it!

I really can't forget the taste of this sweet white wine... I'm haunted by the taste since long after we were there... regret not buying a bottle since we never found better white wine which is so naturally sweet in out entire tour of France. ..
Lovely ambience and knowledgeable English speaking guides

A microscopic fungus called botrytis cinerea develops on bunches of grapes in the autumn thanks to the alternating mists of the morning and the warmer sun in the afternoon. This fungus provides the berries with a high natural sugar concentration that has aromas of dried fruits. Harvesting is done by hand with pickers going through the rows of vines several times, usually four to six times, to pick only the individual berries that have been affected by what is known as Noble Rot. This Noble Rot is what makes these delicious fermented Sauternes of Bordeaux renowned around the world. In a visit to Chateau La Tour Blanche, we were given a very fascinating tour not only of the winery but of the vineyards, witnessing first hand the botrytis cinerea. This Chateau was bequesthed to the French State in 1907 upon the death of its last owner, Daniel Iffla who made the condition that the Chateau become a practical, no-fee wine school. We met many of the students who had recently been harvesting the grapes and were in the process of learning the techniques and principles of oenology. The estate is open year round Monday-Friday from 9 am-Noon and 2pm-5pm and has a tasting room where we bought several bottles of this delicious wine. This is a must vist Chateau to learn about the remarkable terroir, technology, and traditions of Sauterne wine making.

This chateau has a great product range and caters well for non French speaking visitors. My guide (Claire) was magnificent. She offered honest opinions on each wine type and endeavoured to answer all questions. Top class experience. My only regret was travelling by bicycle, which meant I couldnt purchase more win
