    (Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey) A rich golden hue here. A great nose, rich and impressive, laced with minerals, tangerines, lemons, barley sugar, almonds and pistachios. On the palate it has a very broad and yet fine substance, composed and nicely integrated. Wonderful and elegant texture, underpinned by a little grip, which sits perfectly with the slightly fat fruit and nut flavours. Perfectly polished on the finish, sweet but also savoury, orangey, and very, very long. This is just brilliant, and although the various components of this wine are very enjoyable now the true quality of the wine will only come with more time. Excellent.

    (Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey Sauternes) A slightly deeper, richer, orange tinged hue when compared with some other 2001s. Lovely nose, full of oranges and barley sugar, honey and floral herbs. The palate has simply fabulous freshness, with fine acidity carrying along a panoply of flavours, led by sweet orange fruit with notes of orange blossom, honey and minerals. A delicious creamy style, backed up by a little grip and that fine acidity for structure, complete the picture. Overall this is wonderful wine, beautifully balanced, and just dripping with pent-up potential for the future.
