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. Drink 2014-2035.

Lots of dried fruits with hints of honey and spices. Full and rich with a thick, sweet, dense palate. Long, refined finish. Not the 2001, but excellent.

Tasted blind. Mid copper. Very sweet start. Flattering and rich. Clean and direct. Dense.

Impressive but simple weight of sugar. Big and round with just about enough acidity but not much subtlety. Certainly big but without any layers yet. Drink 2014-20

A return to top form for this great cru. The nose is very perfumed and unctuous. The wine has great richness and beautiful concentration; not quite finished but the potential shines through. 5 Stars
