Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2007 Lafaurie-Peyraguey has fulfilled all my expectations since its impressive primeur showing. It is has a light, succinct nose with white peach, pear, apple-blossom and a touch of chalk dust. Good definition, although it needs a little more vitality. The palate is superb: very vibrant on the entry, marmalade, quince, mandarin and a touch of ginger, just a little disjointed towards the finish, good length. Time in bottle will allow this to coalesce...93" WA 04/10 "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...93" IWC 08/10

This is another very primal, honeyed nose that is still a little yeasty but there appears to be good fruit concentration with honey, mango and apricot. The palate is displaying very good delineation and minerality, very vibrant and focused with a crisp, zest finish. Good level of botrytis towards the finish, very good length. Very fine. Drink 2012ndash;2030.

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. Alex Lallos. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Lafaurie-Peyraguey 375ml

Yellow-gold. Knockout nose combines apricot jam, peach, white plum and spicy, vanillin oak. Lush and fat with fruit; opulent and seamless. Wonderfully concentrated flavors of peach, nectarine and spices, with a whiff of menthol adding complexity. Fat and sweet but with lovely freshness and lift; in fact, this is showing more shape and thrust than it did from barrel a year ago. Finishes long and spicy, with very strong fruit. This is really delicious.

This superb, light to medium gold/green-hued Sauternes is a full-bodied, opulent, enormously endowed, moderately sweet offering with plenty of pineapple, peach, caramel, and smoky new oak characteristics. With great viscosity as well as richness, and good underlying acidity providing vibrancy and definition, it should be at its peak between 2008-2030.

In der Nase zeigt dieser Sauternes Noten nach Orangenmarmelade und Zitrusfrüchten. Der Körper ist voll und die Struktur ist komplex. Die Säure ist gut balanciert und der Abgang ist aromatisch und anhaltend.

Wow. Unbelievable. Loads of lush spice and honey, with syrupy aromas. Full-bodied and superthick, with masses of fruit and a long, long finish. I have to buy some of this!

Tasted single blind against its peers. This is another Sauternes that is evolving beautifully in bottle. Initially it is rather closed on the nose with touches of lemon curd, apple-blossom and fresh pears. The palate is well-balanced with good acidity, and it is imbued with a femininity and poise. Though it is tighter compared to its peers at the moment, it is sure to give immense pleasure down the line. Could this be as great as the 1986 mdash; or even greater? Tasted January 2011.
