    October 1, 2019 - With dessert. Medium yellow in color the nose was floral. The palate was ripe peaches, dates and honey. Finish was medium. A good sauterne but I expected more.

    September 13, 2019 - Low acid, lots of peach, not a long finish. Opened and drank right away. Maybe next time let it air for a few hours? Served it with dessert, everybody really liked it. Beautiful deep yellow orange color.

    December 30, 2018 - Nice, stylish but somewhat lacking in power and length. Did not stand up to apple tart but still enjoyable.

    October 5, 2018 - I’ve always thought 2005 was a light vintage for Sauternes and this wine doesn’t dispute that. Peach and tropical fruits on display. Lacks depth and acidity to make this a more compelling effort. Medium long finish. Ok but not worth the price of admission.

    (Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey (Sauternes)) This is polished and honeyed on the nose, with lots of rôti fruit and some expressive botrytis notes coming in at the edges as well. It has a very elegant composition nevertheless, despite the very broad and fleshy sweetness which betrays the warmth of the vintage. Ultimately this has a good grippy style, substantial and rich, weighty even, all these characteristics off-set by a great, tingling acidity. An impressive wine.
