Chateau Lafurie-Peyraguey Sauternes (375ml) 2005

$33.00

If you’re ever walking the vineyards chez D’yquem – take a quick look across and up the hill – there you’ll find another ‘first growth’ premiere cru that has largely flown under the radar – which is a very good thing for us.

Listed in the original 1855 classification of Sauternes and Barsac directly behind Yquem and La Tour Blanche, Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey drastically over delivers, consistently hitting way above its weight class. Despite souring scores and rave critical reviews – year in and year out – the wines are still incredibly affordable.

The 2005 Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey features abundant tension between the slight tinge of sweetness and its bracing acidity. In the glass, it continues to unfold throughout the evening – sometimes featuring coastal fruits – pineapple, mango and citrus and sometimes leaning towards almond, praline, and lemon curd. You can just sit and sip all night.

95 Points, James Suckling
This is powerful and racy with lots of class. Full body, very sweet with lots of spicy botrytis character. Intense. Drink or hold.
