CHATEAU
The construction of Chateau La Tour Blanche dates from the 18th Century.

In 1855, The Imperial Government requested that the most deserving wines of The Gironde be submitted to The Universal Exhibition in Paris so that a classification system could be established. Chateau La Tour Blanche was placed top of The 'Premiers Crus' of The Sauternes Appellation.

But it was not until the beginning of the 20th Century that the originality of this prestigious estate's history became really apparent. The former owner, Daniel Iffla, a.k.a. "Osiris", decided to bequeath the property to the French State under the condition that a Wine School be created on site. After having accepted the donation in 1909, The Ministry of Agriculture commissioned construction of La Tour Blanche School of Viticulture and Œnology in 1911.
Despite its unusual status, this wine-producing Estate is entirely managed by authentic professionals in The Wine Trade

78% Sémillon, 20% Sauvignon, 2% Muscadelle
Investment to maintain its reputation
Fitted out with the most modern and efficient equipment, it also knows how to keep the more traditional aspects of winemaking.
Recently renovated and air-conditioned, this winery stocks nearly 400 Bordeaux traditional barrels. They are made from French oak (stave-wood) and are renewed every vintage.
Ageing in barrels lasts for 16 to 18 months on average.
Careful attention is paid to the wine during this preservation period as perfection is the key word if it is to reach its unmatched refinement
The ultra-modern vathouse only contains vats made out of stainless steel with a 1500 hectolitres capacity.

Each vat is equipped with an electronic temperature-control system.
It is in this vathouse that the grapes are pneumatically pressed as well as some of the post-fermentation operation, until bottling and labelling.
