Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey 2005, Sauternes
1er Cru Classe Sauternes
This is a very complete wine with everything in the right place. A pale, golden green colour and a powerful spicy apricots and dried fruit nose lead into an unctuous, textured mouthful of honeyed citrus fruit and a very long finish. A very fine Lafaurie. Drink 2014 to 2026.
Lafaurie-Peyraguey has a very impressive, ornate ch’?teau that is well worth a visit. The vineyard of 41 hectares is sited on the lower part of tthe Bommes plateau below its name-sake, Clos Haut-Peyraguey. The word Peyraguey means hill. The name Lafaurie derives from the fact that the estate was acquired by a Monsieur Lafaurie during the Revolution.Today it is owned and managed by Jean-Pierre Petroffe who prides himself on the meticulous care taken from vineyard, through several stages of harvesting to the cellar. These are Sauternes wines with wonderful creaminess and great complexity
