Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 1988

Winemaker's Notes:

The rich yet fresh and lively 1988 offers a compelling, flowery and honeyed bouquet of vanilla custard, buttery orange/apricot scents, and smoky creme brulee. The wine's zesty acidity brings everything into extraordinary clarity. With plenty of botrytis evident, this is a full-bodied, super-concentrated, fascinating, powerful yet elegant Sauternes that will age beautifully for 25-30 years.

Fantastic aged Sauternes. Warm candied fruit flavors, cashews, burnt sugar but acidic grip hangs on like its climbing Everest. Such a treat. Was amazing with creme caramel. Would probably still be very much alive for years to come.
