DescriptionChateau Lafaurie Peyraguey 2001
"The 2001 Lafaurie-Peyraguey has a very refined, elegant bouquet that demonstates more mineralite than the previous vintages: great tension here with marmalade, quince and dried honey scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous opening. The acidity is nicely judged with touches of spice and nutmeg, although the finish is quite linear and does not quite deliver the panache of its peers. Still, this is drinking extremely well now and should continue to give pleasure over the next decade or so." (92 pts. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com #216, Dec. 2014)
"Exotic and ripe with loads of tropical fruit and sweet fruit. Full-bodied, spicy and very long. Sweet and loaded with botrytis. This is a young Sauternes built for aging." (95 pts. JS, Wine Spectator, Sept. 2004)
Estimate: $160 - $200.
