Reviews for 2003 Lafaurie-Peyraguey Sauternes Blend

WS 97
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2006
Very very intense aromas of dried apricot and lemon. Honey syrup and Golden Delicious. Full-bodied viscous and very sweet. Pour it on pancakes. Love it. And drink it. Who can wait? Best after 2010. 6250 cases made.

This is full body, very sweet with an amazing depth of fruit and spices. Loads of botrytis character. Dried pineapple and apple character. Tight and closed. Best ever from here. Should be event better in 2018.

The 2003 has a deep amber/golden color. The nose is typical of the 2003 Sauternes with marmalade, orange peel, peach skin, touches of sea spray developing with time. There is good vigor and the aromatics are very open... The 2003 has a deep amber/golden color. The nose is typical of the 2003 Sauternes with marmalade, orange peel, peach skin, touches of sea spray developing with time. There is good vigor and the aromatics are very open. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity considering the vintage: quince, mandarin, Chinese five spice and bitter orange towards the finish. This is one of the best 2003 Sauternes out there. - Neal Martin

Yellow-gold. Knockout nose combines apricot jam peach white plum and spicy vanillin oak. Lush and fat with fruit opulent and seamless. Wonderfully concentrated flavors of peach nectarine and spices with a whiff of menthol... Yellow-gold. Knockout nose combines apricot jam peach white plum and spicy vanillin oak. Lush and fat with fruit opulent and seamless. Wonderfully concentrated flavors of peach nectarine and spices with a whiff of menthol adding complexity. Fat and sweet but with lovely freshness and lift in fact this is showing more shape and thrust than it did from barrel a year ago. Finishes long and spicy with very strong fruit. This is already delicious.
