Description

“This is really crazy. The layers of fruit to this and the sheer intensity are really superb. Full-bodied and very sweet yet energetic and focused. Dense and tight. Tasted it and said OMG right away!” (4/2017) James Suckling

The 2016 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey has a perfumed, minerally bouquet that is taut and focused, beautifully defined and very precise. The palate is very well balanced with peach, nectarine and honey on the entry. This is a complex Sauternes, armed with superb acidity and bite, leading to a persistent finish that offers a dab of peaches and cream on the aftertaste. This is excellent.  (4/2017) Neal Martin for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“The 2016 Lafaurie-Peyraguey is arrestingly beautiful. Passion fruit, mango, mint, white pepper and flowers give it a distinctly exotic feel. Unctuous and plush on the palate, the 2016 possesses superb balance and tons of personality. Naturally, the style leans toward the more tropical side of things – as it always does – but all the elements are impeccably balanced. Yields were just 17 hectoliters per hectare, while the blend, unusually, favors Sauvignon Blanc rather than Sémillon.” Antonio Galloni

“Barrel Sample. A perfectly balanced wine, this boasts a beautiful harmony between bright acidity and ripe, sweet fruit. It is rich, but balanced by great acidity as well as lingering spicy notes. It is suited for long-term aging.”  (4/2017) Wine Enthusiast
