The 2017 Lafaurie-Peyraguey builds on the promise that it showed out of barrel. It was picked from September 25 until October 12 via two tries at 13hl/ha, and matured in 33% new French oak. There is 132hl/ha residual sugar. The 2017 has a much more intense bouquet than the nascent 2018, and the copious scents of wild honey, heather, yellow flowers and hints of saffron are all very well defined. The balanced palate delivers a viscous opening, well-judged acidity and impressive volume in the mouth. I admire the focus and precision of this young Sauternes, in particular the spiciness that is amped up on the finish. Superb. Closed under DIAM 10 instead of natural cork. Tasted from an ex-château bottle sent to my home.

Vinous

A wine of stunning beauty, the 2017 Lafaurie-Peyraguey is so remarkably vivid from the very first taste. All the elements simply fall into place effortlessly. Orchard fruit, tangerine, passion fruit mint and exotic floral overtones all grace this precise, wonderfully inviting Sauternes from Silvio Denz. Lafaurie-Peyraguey is pure and total finesse.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2017 Lafaurie-Peyraguey gives up fresh lime and yuzu notions with hints of musk perfume and grapefruit peel. Quite zesty and intense in the mouth, it has a refreshing line supporting the rich fruit and a touch of earthiness to the finish.
