2005 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes (Previously $70)

SKU #1039578 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is powerful and racy with lots of class. Full body, very sweet with lots of spicy botrytis character. Intense. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (10/2012)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Classic Sauternes, treading the fine line between sweetness and elegance. Initially, it seems to be dominated by the botrytis, but then sweet fruits also show, with ripe yellow fruits, honey and almonds, touched with citrus. As it develops, the wine will become richer and more intense. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2008)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark There's beautiful ripe fruit in this, with pineapple, mango and papaya and hints of vanilla and honey. Full-bodied and medium sweet. Rich and round, with loads of cooked apple, citrus peel and spices. Long and flavorful. Dense and rich. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2008)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey offer apricot, fig jam and touch of almond on the focused bouquet, grilled walnut coming through later. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, quite structured and almost austere in comparison with other vintages. There is good tension here, vibrant and citric with impressive mineralité towards the finish. This has great potential. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This is rich in color and in its scents of beeswax and macerated peaches. Clean, light and gently honeyed, this is a balanced, lovely Sauternes that should age well. Inner quote mark (10/2008)

Decanter

Outer quote mark A return to top form for this great cru. The nose is very perfumed and unctuous. The wine has great richness and beautiful concentration; not quite finished but the potential shines through. Inner quote mark (4/2006)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very big and bold and massive. In retreat. Chewy finish but very long. This should emerge to be something exciting but at the moment is very inexpressive. Inner quote mark (2/2009)
