About Chateau Lafaurie Peyraguey
Values are tough to find in Sauternes, but this is certainly one of them, especially in the good vintages. The south facing slopes here provide the vines with ample sunlight and excellent drainage, producing a wonderfully rich, honeyed, tropical-fruity Sauternes with lovely balance and precision of flavor.
93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - August 2010
($42-$70) Full medium gold. Deep, rich aromas and flavors of apricot, honey, nougat and marzipan. Thick but not at all heavy, with a piquant orange peel note and ripe, harmonious acidity giving shape to this fat, full, palate-saturating wine. Quite zesty for young Lafaurie, finishing with a strong impression of spicy energy. A strong performance for this estate.
