A purity and finesse to this young Sauternes with mushroom, botrytis and flower character. The sweetness, fruit, phenolics and acidity balance it out to an ethereal level. Lovely finish.
Silvio Denz's 2015 Lafaurie-Peyraguey is terrific. Understated and wonderfully nuanced, the 2015 exudes class. The tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, apricot, honey and chamomile notes are beautifully sketched. There is so much to like. The blend is approximately 96% Sémillon, 4% Sauvignon, 1% Muscadelle from yields of just 10 hectoliters per hectare. Denis Dubourdieu consults. (AG)
Luscious while still showing great balance, this is a fine wine. It has ripe orange and lemon flavors that are never too sweet. Acidity cuts through the texture, lifting the wine and giving it a brilliant, elegant aftertaste. (RV)
This 36-hectare estate made a stunning Sauternes and the 2015 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey (mostly Sémillon with 6% Sauvignon Blanc and a splash of Muscadelle) is loaded with notions of caramelized peach, orange marmalade, honey, and citrus oil. Full-bodied, incredibly opulent and rich, yet with good acidity, it’s a big, rich 2015 that has the concentration to keep for two decades or more. Tasted twice. This estate also utilizes Denis Dubourdieu as a consultant.
The 2015 Lafaurie-Peyraguey is pale lemon-gold in color with gorgeous candied citrus peel, orange marmalade and lemon tart notes with hints of musk perfume and honeycomb. The medium to full-bodied palate is rich and opulent with plenty of spicy notes coming through and a very long finish. (LPB)
This has intense acacia, honey and orange peel notes, with glazed nectarine and peach flavors filling out the core. A piecrust edge caresses the finish but allows the fruit to hold center stage, resulting in a very pure, stylish Sauternes. Drink now through 2040. (JM)
Perfumed nose of acacia honey, crystallised ginger, lemon verbena, juniper and fresh citrus fruit. Impeccable balance to the acid-sugar-tannin ratio and boasts noteworthy refinement. One of the best Sauternes of the vintage; refined yet powerful.
