*Cellar Selection* 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. (RV)
Cropped over 7 tries with 130 grams per liter of residual sugar, the 2007 Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey has a generous bouquet with almond, dried honey, minerals and yellow flowers – a little resinous and almost Barsac-like at first, though developing more botrytized aromas with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a honeyed entry. There is very good weight here: plenty of botrytized fruit, good acidity, lovely notes of mandarin, marmalade, quince and a twist of citrus lemon on the dense and assertive finish. This is a top Lafaurie-Peyraguey that was worth the perseverance during the harvest. (NM)
Honey, dried pineapple, apricot and tropical fruit on the nose. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a spice, dried fruit and honey aftertaste. (JS)
Full body with much more concentration and structure than a second wine. Medium sweet, with spice and honey character. Serious intensity. Drink or hold.
Deep bronze. Lots of depth, richness, burnt caramel and glory. This is serious stuff! Tingle and great intensity with a hint of ripe pears. Long and reverberant. Great clarity – and muscularity. 18/20 points (JR)
