CHATEAU LA TOUR BLANCHE

This Premier Grand Cru Classé Sauternes estate takes its name from its 18th Century founder, Jean Saint-Marc du Latourblanche, Treasurer General to Louis XIV. Its current tale begins, though, in the early 20th Century when then owner Daniel 'Osiris' Iffla bequeathed the château to the French Government, with the proviso that it be turned into a Wine School. After a period of Gallic humming and hawing, the Ministry of Agriculture agreed, and created the La Tour Blanche School of Viticulture and Oenology. Construction was completed in 1911. Despite its unusual status, Château La Tour Blanche is run by genuinely experienced Bordeaux personnel.

The vineyard consists of 91 hectares planted in 83% Sémillon, 12% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle. The terroir is a mix of gravel, clay, sand and limestone. This estate has soared in quality since the late eighties and is now one of the most consistent in the region.
