Choukroun Chicheportiche Jonathan - VertdeVin about Château La Tuilerie White 2020: 89/100
The nose offers notes of juicy apple, white flowers, lily of the valley and small notes of zest associated with touches of minerality. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers an acidulous frame, juiciness, a good definition, suavity, a fine grain, fat as well as a certain roundness. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of lychee, pulpy quenette and small notes of fleshy green apple associated with touches of fresh pear, small exotic fruits as well as fine hints of lime. Good length.
Bernard Burtschy- Le Figaro about Château La Tuilerie Blanc : 91/100
Pale in color, the nose is very intense marked by Sauvignon alongside Semillon and Muscadelle. The wine is supple with a beautiful ripe grape which the nose did not suggest, the whole is suave with a very good potential and a small very noble bitterness. Nice success for this vineyard which has always been worked mechanically without using weedkillers.
