Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey 2002

Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey – First Growth Sauternes

Chateau Lafaurie Peyraguey, SauternesBill Blatch: The Lafauries of the 90s had been heavy, rich wines. With this 2002, we start to see the gradual transformation of this great estate’s wines into something finer and more complex. It has something of the richness and fullness of style of yore, but also a certain tone and minerality to the fruit, something that had always been there but just needed bringing out. With the finesse of the 2002 vintage, there is a real feeling of balance and harmony in the wine. Pure and fine yet dense and strong, this is almost Barsac in its finesse.
