Stunning concentration and purity of flavor. The knife-edge acidity electrifies the palate and turns the finish into a fireworks display of fruit and mineral freshness. You could drink this now, but its got enormous aging potential.

This 36-hectare estate made a stunning Sauternes and the 2015 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey (mostly Sémillon with 6% Sauvignon Blanc and a splash of Muscadelle) is loaded with notions of caramelized peach, orange marmalade, honey, and citrus oil. Full-bodied, incredibly opulent and rich, yet with good acidity, it’s a big, rich 2015 that has the concentration to keep for two decades or more. Tasted twice. This estate also utilizes Denis Dubourdieu as a consultant.

This has intense acacia, honey and orange peel notes, with glazed nectarine and peach flavors filling out the core. A piecrust edge caresses the finish but allows the fruit to hold center stage, resulting in a very pure, stylish Sauternes. Drink now through 2040. — J.M.

Understated and classy to the core, the Lafaurie-Peyraguey Sauternes is just as compelling from bottle as it was from barrel. Pineapple, mango, mint and wild flowers are all laced together in this silky, wonderfully nuanced Sauternes from Silvio Denz. The 2015 is 96% Sémillon, 4% Sauvignon and 1% Muscadelle, from yields of just 10 hectoliters per hectare.

The 2015 Lafaurie-Peyraguey is pale lemon-gold in color with gorgeous candied citrus peel, orange marmalade and lemon tart notes with hints of musk perfume and honeycomb. The medium to full-bodied palate is rich and opulent with plenty of spicy notes coming through and a very long finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
