Tasting Notes

No tasting note given.

Score: 92Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (176), April 2008

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.

Score: 92James Suckling,, February 2008

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.

Score: 92/94James Suckling,, March 2006

Tasted blind. Mid copper. Very sweet start. Flattering and rich. Clean and direct. Dense.
Drink 2015-2032

Score: 17Jancis Robinson MW,, March 2017

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

Score: 16Jancis Robinson MW,, April 2006

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
