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.
92-95 Points | International Wine Cellar , July 2012
(3.86 pH; 6.5 g/l total acidity; 130 g/l residual sugar): Bright yellow-gold. Highly expressive, oak-influenced aromas of mirabelle, pear, apricot nectar, clove, gin and jasmine; this displays an almost riesling-like penetrating quality. Then fresh, sweet and wonderfully pure, with a nectar-like quality to its floral flavors of peach, orange, minerals and spices. Plenty of tangy botrytis character here and superb aromatic persistence on the long, minerally finish. Promises to be a great vintage for this property.
