  • Specifications
Medium gold with honeyed orange marmalade notes and other assorted citrus and rich, full-bodied flavors, this wine has an unctuous texture, and while the viscosity is high, the acidity is adequate for balance and harmony. This is a big, bold, impressively endowed wine to drink over the next 20+ years.

Commentaire Tasted at the Sauternes 2006 ten-year on horizontal in Bordeaux. The 2006 Lafaurie Peyraguey has a complex bouquet: honey, white chocolate, quince and dried pineapple scents that billow from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with marmalade and bitter orange on the entry, a fine line of acidity with a harmonious mandarin and grapefruit finish that carries ample botrytis with it. This appears to have improved over the last couple of years, suggesting an upward trajectory in bottle? Worth checking out. Tasted April 2016.

Il digère son élevage, mais ne perd pas de son éclat. Elancé et raffiné, avec une grande complexité de bouche et surtout une très belle énergie en finale.
