Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey Sauternes 2010
Big, concentrated botrytis flavors, layering the honey with the rich dried fruits. This is a powerhouse of a wine, densely structured.
Barrel Sample: 94-96 Points
Already a slightly dark colore. Beautiful concentration. It’s rich and very sweet with intense notes of bitter oranges and honey. Superb finish that long and racy with notes of botrytis.
Barrel Sample: 93-94 Points
Bright medium-deep gold. Captivating aromas of tangerine, peach and honey are complemented by flowers and a sexy oak note of coconut. Highly concentrated, fresh and sweet, with gloriously pure, marmalady botrytis tones complicating the citrus, caramelized banana, toffee and peach flavors. Rich and creamy yet wonderfully balanced thanks to plenty of acidity, this impressive young Sauternes finishes with palate-staining length and lingering hints of white pepper and ginger.
