Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Château Lafaurie Peyraguey, 1er Cru Classé, Sauternes, 2004

A wonderfully successful Sauternes, one of the picks of the bunch in 2004. This offers an abundance of licorice mineral, and acacia honey flavours, this is dense, concentrated, complex and has plenty of lift on the finish, superb.

Neal Martin, Vinous
The 2004 Lafaurie-Peyraguey is one of the less successful vintages in recent years. The nose slowly unfurls to reveal light peach and honey notes and an adhesive trait. The palate is medium-bodied with a lightly spiced entry; a little lean for a Sauternes of note, though balanced. This is linear and fresh in style, with a touch of salinity toward the long finish. Enjoyable, though not a long-term Sauternes. Tasted from an ex-château bottle at home.

Château Lafaurie Peyraguey

Lafaurie Peyraguey is a 1er Cru Classé, located in the appellation of Sauternes. The exact history of the Lafaurie-Peyraguey’s Estate is unclear, the earliest known records date back to the early 17th century, when Sieur Raymond Peyraguey was the land owner. However, in 1742 the Estate was acquired by Baron Nicolas-Pierre de Pichard, owner of Lafite and Coutet, who established the estate’s reputation as a great wine. In all, there are 41 hectares based on silica and gravel rich soils on deep limestone. The vineyards are heavily biased towards Semillon, with just 8% Sauvignon Blanc, and 2% Muscadelle. The vines have an average age of 40 years and the whole harvest is fermented in French oak barriques.
