1988 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes

SKU #970056 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The massively rich, yet fresh, lively 1988 offers a compelling, flowery, honeyed bouquet of vanilla custard, buttery orange/apricot scents, and smoky ceme brulee. The wine's zesty acidity brings everything into extraordinary clarity. With plenty of botrytis evident, this is a full-bodied, super-concentrated, fascinating, powerful yet elegant Sauternes that will age beautifully for 25-30 years. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2030. (RP) Inner quote mark (1/1998)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Yellow and gold color. Beautiful honey, lemon cream pie and dried pineapple. Full-bodied, very sweet and layered, with loads of butterscotch, cream, and honey on the finish. Powerful, rich, and complex. (JS, Web Only—2008) Inner quote mark

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good pale color. Fresh, flinty aromas of apple, fresh herbs and dried fruits. Very rich and pliant in the mouth, with a strong resiny/spicy flavor. Strong for the vintage, and very well balanced. Quite powerful and long on the finish, with complex flavors of honey, earth and tobacco. (ST) Inner quote mark (8/1998)
