Critical Acclaim

WE 97
Wine Enthusiast

Very gold in color, this is a wine that seems initially closed, tight, only slowly showing its full panoply of richness, density and sweet final acidity.
Barrel Sample: 95-97 Points

ST 94
International Wine Cellar

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.
Range: 91-94 Points

James Suckling

Aromas and flavors of cider, honey, lemon and hints of pie crust and caramel. Medium-to-full body, medium sweet and a fresh finish. Racy and refined. Elegant style for Lafaurie.

The Wine Advocate

I recall that in barrel, this wine was difficult to assess due to the SO2 present and even tasting it blind in bottle, I pick up on that sulphur. I sincerely hope that this will clear away with time because what is on the palate seems so promising. It is laden with luscious honeyed fruit, orange zest and mandarin, minerals and barley sugar. There is a wonderful viscous texture that remains precise, well-balanced and composed until the very end. I have to insert a question mark due to the sulphur issue, but I recommend either laying the bottle down for several years or affording it 12-24 hours decanting.

WS 93
Wine Spectator

A more powerful style, with toasted coconut, almond and orange peel notes up front, followed by a dense core of creamed peach, glazed apricot and ginger, with a date-tinged finish. This should unwind soon enough while staying on the darker, tropical side of the spectrum. Best from 2015 through 2030.

Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey
In the heart of the Sauternes country, Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey has a striking appearance, rising out of this gently rolling countryside. The walls surrounding it give it a Hispano-Byzantine look. Its XIIIth century gateway and castle towers, along with the main building rebuilt in the XVIIth century, are tangible proof of its age. Mr Lafaurie purchased it during the Revolution, in 1794, and his outstanding knowledge of things of the earth brought the vineyard immediate renown,... View More
