Highly expressive oak-influenced aromas of mirabelle pear apricot nectar clove gin and jasmine; this displays an almost riesling-like penetrating quality. Then fresh sweet and wonderfully pure with a nectar-like quality to its floral flavors of peach orange minerals and spices. Plenty of tangy botrytis character here and superb aromatic persistence on the long minerally finish. Promises to be a great vintage for this property.

Spicy and dry, this ripe wine is as much about structure as sweetness at this stage. It is dense, packed with acidity and fragrant acacia and wildflower honey.

It is dense, packed with acidity and fragrant acacia and wildflower honey. As it opens up, it brings out orange zest and perfumed acidity. Drink from 2019.

The 2011 Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey has a very primal nose with dried pineapple, beeswax, a touch of sea spray and wet stone. The palate is medium-bodied with a harmonious, viscous entry and very well-judged acidity that lends tension and poise. There is something more effortless about this 2011 compared to recent vintages, with a tang of marmalade popping up on the finish that is very elegant. Excellent. - Neal Martin

A dense, sweet wine with dried pineapple, papaya and honey. Full body, very sweet and fresh. Spicy, botrytis character. Almost waxy undertone. Solid wine. Try in 2017.

Frankly sweet and very direct with candied green plum and green apple notes followed by quince and ginger flavors. Shows the racy side of the vintage but seems a bit shy on depth compared to the top examples.-J.M.

90% semillon 8% sauvignon 2% muscadelle. Planted on siliceous gravel and mixed clay and gravel soils. Barrel fermented then aged in 30% new oak. Expresses moderate complexity with notes of coconut cream and baking spice... 90% semillon 8% sauvignon 2% muscadelle. Planted on siliceous gravel and mixed clay and gravel soils. Barrel fermented then aged in 30% new oak. Expresses moderate complexity with notes of coconut cream and baking spice. Fresh and clean with vibrant acidity that masks the sugars nicely for a wonderful balance this shows some notes of marmalade and has moderate length. Enjoy over the next 10-15 years.
