Barrel Sample. Lime and ripe pear tones are made richer by the yellow fruits that power out of this wine. Showing nice weight and freshness, this wine will be powerful and hugely concentrated. (RV)
The Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey 2014 is a blend of 94% Sémillon, 6% Sauvignon Blanc and 1% Muscadelle picked from 17 September to 27 October (17 days of picking over four tries.) The yields was just 9.4 hectoliter per hectare and it is aged in 40% new oak and there is 137 grams per liter residual sugar. It has a very pure bouquet that should fine mineralité once in bottle. It is not as intense as its peers, but very harmonious and one can see the influence of Prof. Denis Dubourdieu here, instilling more 'verve' than recent vintages. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry. Very precise, very poised but linear at the moment, the best part of this Sauternes is the last ‘third’ that is underpinned by vibrant, spicy fruit and a long effervescent tail on the finish. Excellent, through the new wood on the finish suggests that it will benefit from several years in bottle. (NM)
The mango and papaya notes have a creamy mouthfeel, while glazed pear and peach notes add range. Candied lemon peel and piecrust hints gild the rich finish. A pretty style. (JM)
A very attractive marzipan, pineapple and candied-lemon nose with discreet vanilla oak. Quit a big, rich wine, but there’s not that much honey. The balance is the best thing about this moderately sweet wine. Clean and straight finish that pulls you back to the glass.
Scents of orange peel, mint, white flowers, mango and pineapple abound in the 2014 Lafaurie-Peyraguey. Subtle and quite nuanced, with striking complexity and tons of personality, the 2014 possesses exceptional balance and tons of harmony. (AG)
