1990 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes

SKU #1016916 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This still shows lots of botrytis character with honey and sliced dried pineapple, Full body, medium sweet and a clean finish. Not the concentration of the 1989. But beautiful. Inner quote mark (2/2014)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Wonderfully complex, quintessential Sauternes aromas of apricot, smoke, truffle, game and licorice. Thick and mouthfilling, but kept fresh by strong, harmonious acidity. Conveys a tactile, layered texture and strong noble rot character. Really lovely balance. Finishes with powerful fruit and great persistence. Stunning wine. (ST) Inner quote mark (8/1998)

92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 1990 vintage of Lafaurie-Peyraguey has aged very nicely and is now at its apogee of peak drinkability. The color is now getting quite deep amber and the nose offers up a lovely, honeyed constellation of apricot, orange, crème brulée, nutty overtones, a touch of cherry, honey and a lovely base of buttery oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and à point, with good acids and focus, a lovely core and a long, complex finish that closes with bounce and grip. Good juice. (Drink between 2018-2050) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1990 exhibits a deep golden corn-like color, followed by sensational aromatics (honeyed citrus, pineapple and pear intertwined with smoke and creme brulee-like notes). In the mouth, the wine is massive and full-bodied, with an unctuous texture, and powerful, juicy flavors that possess mouth-staining extract, glycerin, and viscosity. This is a blockbuster-styled, sweet Sauternes with at least 30 years of longevity. (RP) Inner quote mark (1/1998)
