    Winemaker's Notes:

    Grapes are hand picked extremely selectively on successive passes (4 to 7, depending on the year) according to their maturity, only harvesting those grapes that have attained the required degree of concentration under the influence of noble rot.

    An average of 40 years, depending on the vintage.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Packed with botrytis, this is a wine whose sweetness is suppressed by richness. Flavors of bitter oranges and white figs go with the intense core of botrytis, followed by a touch of bright acidity. This is a wine whose journey is just beginning.

    The 2007 Lafaurie-Peyraguey has fulfilled all my expectations since its impressive primeur showing. It is has a light, succinct nose with white peach, pear, apple-blossom and a touch of chalk dust. Good definition, although it needs a little more vitality. The palate is superb: very vibrant on the entry, marmalade, quince, mandarin and a touch of ginger, just a little disjointed towards the finish, good length. Time in bottle will allow this to coalesce. Drink 2014-2030.

    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.

    Honey, dried pineapple, apricot and tropical fruit on the nose. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a spice, dried fruit and honey aftertaste. Balanced and pretty. Best after 2012.
