South/south-east exposure. The soils are very sloping and the sunshine is permanent and exceptional, so the grapes are quickly matured.
Lovely rounded honeyed, slightly buttery nose with touches of white peach and white flowers. Very well balanced, great tension and weight in the middle. Honeyed fruits, mango, peach, a touch of brioche and quince. Complex and displaying some admirable levels of botrytis, the finish is viscous and very focused. Great length. Superb!
Chalk dust, almond and a touch of peach emerging after some time in glass. The palate is fresh with good weight and good level of botrytis. Notes of honey and quince with good fresh acidity. Floral, peachy finish. A very attractive Sauternes.
The 2018 Lafaurie-Peyraguey is pale lemon-gold colored and bursts from the glass with vibrant notes of grapefruit, fresh pineapple, mango and guava plus nuances of lemongrass, crushed rocks and allspice. The palate has plenty of spring in its step with energetic citrus and tropical fruit layers, finishing long and zesty.
The 2017 Guiraud opens with subtle notions of crushed rocks, wild fungi and fragrant earth leading to a profound core of orange marmalade, crystalized lemon peel, dried pineapple and paraffin wax. The rich, opulent, wonderfully exotic palate delivers soft acidity and loads of spicy sparks, finishing with great length and depth. robertparker.com
Small, elegant and lasting bubbles, flowery and fruity nose with notes of ripe apricots and mirabelles, a lively and refreshing attack with subtle hints of peach. In the mouth it is ample and rich with a lingering racy and refreshing taste.
Intense purple colour. On the nose, notes of red berries (blackberry, blackcurrant). Spicy notes, a touch of vanilla and persistent aromas of forest fruits in the mouth.
