Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey Sauternes 2005 French White Dessert Wine 750 mL

rated 92 points Winespetator March 2008

"There's beautiful ripe fruit in this, with pineapple, mango and papaya and hints of vanilla and honey. Full-bodied and medium sweet. Rich and round, with loads of cooked apple, citrus peel and spices. Long and flavorful. Dense and rich. Best after 2012. 6,250 cases made." –JS

"The 2005 Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey offer apricot, fig jam and touch of almond on the focused bouquet, grilled walnut coming through later. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, quite structured and almost austere in comparison with other vintages. There is good tension here, vibrant and citric with impressive mineralité towards the finish. This has great potential." -Neal Martin

Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 1988 French Dessert Wine
Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 1988 French Dessert Wine

Extremely Limited! No Discounts rated 93 points Wine Advocate April 1995

"Although the 1988 received the highest marks of the 1988, 1989 and 1990 vintages, it remains a very backward wine. Full-bodied and powerful, extremely rich and dense, it may be the least evolved 1988. The nose offers enticing coconut, orange, vanilla, and honeyed scents. The flavors are highly extracted. The wine's acidity and youthfulness suggest this wine needs another 5-10 years of cellaring. It should keep for 30 years.Drink 2000-2025" -Robert Parker rated 90 points Winespectator "A beautiful, fresh and elegant Sauternes, with apple pie, lemon and candied apple on the nose. Full-bodied, with bright and clean aniseed, apple and apricot flavors. Medium-sweet and a crisp finish. Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now." -James Suckling
