2018 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 93

With a nose of honeysuckle, orange, tropical fruit, vanilla, white peach and marmalade, there is a lot of sweetness here, and just enough acidity to give it pop.

2017 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 94

Vanilla, pineapple, honey, flowers and overripe apricot create the nose but it is the density, sweetness and purity of fruit along with the piercing acidity and length that make this wine a standout. The harvest, which took place September 25 through October 12, was the shortest picking period in the history of the chateau. Close to 20% of the vineyard was damaged by frost this year. The Grand Vin was made from only 50% of the harvest.

2016 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 94

The blend of vanilla bean, pineapple, honey and nuts in the perfume gets you going. The rich, round, ripe and over ripe tropical fruits coated with honey on the palate is already delicious. For the record, this tastes almost as good as the stunning, Lalique bottle looks on your table which clearly makes a statement.

Take a jar of honey and drop in all the juicy, ripe and over ripe pineapple, orange and apricot fruits you can squeeze into the jar and you're close. All you need is a bouquet of flowers, vanilla bean and some acidity and you get the picture.

2016 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey Le Lys de Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Bordeaux) 93

The second vintage for this new dry white Bordeaux wine really shows off its fresh, lively, floral and fresh green apple, grapefruit and lemon peel character with ease. Vibrant and refreshing there is a nice splash of honey, vanilla bean, tropical fruit and crushed rocks on the palate and in the refreshing finish. Similar to the bottle with the Lalique insert used for their Sauternes, this makes a stunning presentation at your table.

2015 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 95

It is the combination of honeyed citrus and tropical fruits that gives this wine its character. Add in all that honey, flowers and vanilla, and you get the picture. Sweet, ripe, fresh and balanced, this tastes almost as good as the stunning, Lalique bottle looks on your table. This certainly makes a statement.

From 65% Semillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc, the wine smells great with its nutty, pineapple, vanilla and lemon custard aromatic profile. Fresh and zippy, the wine is rich, fat, sweet, and dense with the right amount of acidity to keep all that sweetness in check. 94 - 96 Pts

2015 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey Le Lys de Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Bordeaux) 91

The debut vintage for this new wine from Silvio Denz is made from a blend of 89% Semillon and 11% Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is exactly what you are looking for, provided you're seeking a fresh, crisp white Bordeaux wine packed with honeysuckle, lemons, green apple and slightly candied pomelo. Similar to the bottle with the Lalique insert used for their Sauternes, this makes a stunning presentation the table. – 91 Pts

2014 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 93

Lively, fresh, floral and spice notes add to all that ripe, sweet, juicy, yellow fruit, vanilla bean and honey. Energy, and length with that balance of sweet and acidity is right here. The wine was made from a blend of 93% Semillon, 6% Sauvignon Blanc, 1% Muscadelle.

2013 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 93

Freshness paired with a concentrated blast of honeyed, spicy, tropical fruits, vanilla, honey, apricots and candied orange rind! Young and obviously primary, but who cares? This is delicious stuff!

2011 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 92

I like Sauternes when it's mature and when it's on the young side. And there's nothing wrong with that, as variety is the spice of life. Right? This already a delicious, sweet treat that pops with apricot, pineapple and white nectarines topped with vanilla, honey and roasted nuts. Fresh, vibrant, sweet and lush, with a tropical slant in the finish, this is only going to get better over the years.

2010 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 92

Young, but who cares as this is a delicious treat. Loads of honey coated pineapple, apricot, candied tangerine, vanilla and honeysuckle in the nose and in the mouth. Rich, juicy, sweet and fresh, this should only get better with age.

2009 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 89

Apricot, orange, honey and pear notes produce a perfume that has trouble catching your attention. The palate does not ave enough going to create excitement. This is a plesant Sauternes, but it lacks the depth, complexity and definition that makes the wines great.

2007 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 93

What a nice, finesse style of Sauternes. Focused on freshness, coupled with ripe, honeyed fruits, the wine offers apricot, orange, pineapple and candied citrus rind with sweet vanilla accents and refreshing acidity giving this taste treat lift, along with its honeyed tropical fruit flavors. I enjoy Sauternes young, but this is only going to get better with time.

Rich, sweet, lush, pure, clean and with the right amount of freshness, this honey drenched, apricot, vanilla, floral, spice and candied citrus peel flavored wine is a pure delight to drink. But its best days are in the future with another 5 - 10 more years in the cellar.

2006 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 93

Youthful, vigorous, sweet and fresh, there is a nice purity in the honeyed tropical fruits. Tempered with candied apricots and vanilla bean, the sweet, honey coated, tropical finish has ample lift.

2005 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 91

Lacking the depth and concentration found in the best vintages of Lafaurie Peyraguey, the wine focuses on its apricot, floral, honey, spice, vanilla and orange marmelade perfume. Soft, sweet and ready, this finish serves up sweet, bright, tropical fruits with orange honey in the end notes.

2001 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 93

With layers of sweet, ripe, tropical pineapple, apricots, orange, peach, vanilla and honey, this medium/full bodied sweet, Bordeaux wine offers a juicy mouthful of rich, spicy, honey coated nuts and ripe yellow fruits. This is a Sauternes I enjoy drinking during its first two decades of life. This is probably not a wine to hold for longer periods of time.

1990 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 90

There is a deep gold, with copper color in its hue. Thick, fat, very sweet, with honey coated apricots, orange rind, pineapple and tangerine. This is probably fully mature at this point. There is no reason to age this any longer as the sweetness seem to be less than it was a few years ago.

1988 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 94

I was surprised at how good this bottle was still showing. The color has taken on more amber, copper tones than I remember, but the nose, with its honeyed apricot, candied orange rind, caramel, butterscotch and creme brulee spoke to me. And I was listening as it said to start sipping the delectable blend of pineapple, orange, butterscotch, vanilla bean and honey. This is on the bright, fresh, orange side, but there was enough other things going on here that it kept the score right up there.

On the orange, marmalade, butterscotch and creme brulee side of the style range, there is good acidity, freshness, sweetness here. The finish is a beautiful, honeyed, apricot, pineapple, orange and spice sensation.

Pure apricots, candied orange, tangerine, pineapple and butterscotch custard all slathered with honey and spices. Concentrated, sweet, lush and lusty, this is delicious. Even the deep, orange, copper hue is a beauty. I am not sure this is a wine for that much more evolution, but as it is so delicious today, if you have a bottle and need a treat, pop a cork.

Deep gold in color, butterscotch, tropical fruits, honey, apricot and vanilla scents were in abundance. Still young, sweet, fresh, and rich, this delicious, sweet Bordeaux wine is drinking great today.

Honey coated apricots, orange rind, caramel, vanilla, smoke, pineapple and spice are easy to find. Sweet, round and fully mature, this delicious Sauternes fills your mouth with layers of caramel coated oranges, nectarines and spice. There is no reason to wait to drink this wine as I doubt it will get better in time. Wines like this make me think I need to drink more sweet wines as they are unique.

This wine has the unique distinction of owning the most difficult name in Bordeaux to pronounce correctly. It's also an elegant, fully mature wine that delivers sweet, orange, pineapple, mango and nectarine with honey and toasted vanilla flavors.

On the nose, rich, ripe, sexy, honeyed fruit, flowers and custard notes. Medium/full bodied with ripe, sweet, honey and nut crusted tropical fruit, this was wine to end the night with.

1926 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 95

There was so much chocolate in this beauty, you could think it was a hundred year old, vintage Port! Add to that, honey coated oranges, caramel, brown sugar, butterscotch, breakfast tea with a few tablespoons of honey and you start to get the idea about the bouquet. The wine still retains fruit and it's in balance with the acidity, finishing with sweet, fresh, candied orange, burnt caramel and honeyed nuts in the end notes.
