2009 Sauternes – Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey
Our first visit to Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey to taste the excellent 2009 Sauternes vintage with Eric Larramona. This video highlights just how difficult it is at this early stage to compare the different wines of Sauternes. While his neighbours at Chateau Rayne-Vigneau have finished blending their wine in January, Eric’s lots are still in barrel and still on the lees – racking won’t begin until June!
Incidently both wines scored 97 points with The Wine Enthusiast Magazine so there is more than one way to make good Sauternes – ‘Vive la Difference!’ Bill Blatch
