2009 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes

SKU #1085366 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Barrel sample. Very gold in color, this is a wine that seems initially closed, tight, only slowly showing its full panoply of richness, density and sweet final acidity. Inner quote mark (8/2010)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark There is some SO2 masking the nose here, which is difficult to assess. However, the palate is well balanced with fine minerality, bright citrus fruit, orange zest, a touch of white peach and apricot, good tension towards the finish with a dash of lemongrass on the aftertaste. There is very good weight and botrytis on this Lafaurie Peyraguey that linger seductively. Inner quote mark (4/2010)

91-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium-deep gold. Captivating aromas of tangerine, peach and honey are complemented by flowers and a sexy oak note of coconut. Highly concentrated, fresh and sweet, with gloriously pure, marmalady botrytis tones complicating the citrus, caramelized banana, toffee and peach flavors. Rich and creamy yet wonderfully balanced thanks to plenty of acidity, this impressive young Sauternes finishes with palate-staining length and lingering hints of white pepper and ginger. Inner quote mark (5/2010)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A more powerful style, with toasted coconut, almond and orange peel notes up front, followed by a dense core of creamed peach, glazed apricot and ginger, with a date-tinged finish. This should unwind soon enough while staying on the darker, tropical side of the spectrum. Best from 2015 through 2030. Inner quote mark (1/2012)
