This packs some power, with ginger, dried peach and matchstick hints leading the way, but as this moves along, it slowly shows creamier quince, mango and papaya notes, and an alluring chamomile gilding. Still rather backward, so forget this one in the cellar for a bit. Best from 2018 through 2038. J.M.

A layered and structured Sauternes with dried apricot, melon, apple and hints of honey. Full body, very sweet and refined. Phenolic character gives this form and intensity. Very pretty. Fresh finish.

(WE92-94 points) Very tightly textured, this wine is closed, only slowly revealing its power and complexity. The acidity is strongly present, offering freshness at the end.

(WA92-94 points) The Chateau Lafaurie Peyraguey has a mineral-led, citrus-driven bouquet that is tightly wound at first - delicate touches of orange blossom and apricot emerging from the glass. The palate is well-balanced and attired with a mellifluous, spicy entry. There is certainly good weight and concentration here, the finish long and satisfying, perfectly controlled. This is always a dark horse Sauternes and in 2013 they have produced something a little bit special. - NEAL MARTIN

Subdued but complex aromas of fresh fruit cocktail, mango, menthol and sweet spices. Then rich, spicy and precise in the mouth, with fresh tropical and citrus fruit flavors. A lovely, elegantly styled, nicely balanced wine that is less rich and sweet than usual. This will match well with many scallop, shrimp, carrot and pumpkin dishes. - Ian D'Agata
