Flavors of bitter oranges and white figs go with the intense core of botrytis followed by a touch of bright acidity. This is a wine whose journey is just beginning.

Cropped over 7 tries with 130 grams per liter of residual sugar, the 2007 Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey has a generous bouquet with almond, dried honey, minerals and yellow flowers – a little resinous and almost Barsac-like at first, though developing more botrytized aromas with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a honeyed entry. There is very good weight here: plenty of botrytized fruit, good acidity, lovely notes of mandarin, marmalade, quince and a twist of citrus lemon on the dense and assertive finish. This is a top Lafaurie-Peyraguey that was worth the perseverance during the harvest. - Neal Martin

Full medium gold. Deep rich aromas and flavors of apricot honey nougat and marzipan. Thick but not at all heavy with a piquant orange peel note and ripe harmonious acidity giving shape to this fat full palate-saturating... Full medium gold. Deep rich aromas and flavors of apricot honey nougat and marzipan. Thick but not at all heavy with a piquant orange peel note and ripe harmonious acidity giving shape to this fat full palate-saturating wine. Quite zesty for young Lafaurie finishing with a strong impression of spicy energy. A strong performance for this estate.

Honey dried pineapple apricot and tropical fruit on the nose. Full-bodied and medium sweet with a spice dried fruit and honey aftertaste. Balanced and pretty. Best after 2012. -JS

Deep golden yellow in color. Tons of botrytis with notes of peach apple and pear. Lots of lemon on the mid-palate this beauty fleshes out substantially towards the finish. Good acidity but not as much as other samples.
