The purity and aromatic subtlety of a great Sauternes wine hailed by critics

The estate

A Sauternes Premier Cru Classé since 1855, Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey is one of the most prestigious names in this iconic appellation for sweet wines, located towards the south of the Bordeaux region.

The vineyard

Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey has an exceptional terroir, with a 30-hectare vineyard exclusively reserved for the production of its Sauternes Premier Cru Classé.

Tasting

Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey 2002 is widely acclaimed by critics, with Bettane & Desseauve – Le grand guide des vins de France 2009 describing it as such: "A marvellous purity and subtlety, with a fruitiness that has been completely sheltered from any touches of oxidation or modification, a wonderfully woodiness melted with the liquor, a great seducer." On the international level, this cru is described by the prestigious Wine Spectator as "very pretty for the vintage, with lots of aromas of lemoned honey and vanilla. Full-bodied, very sweet with dried banana, apricot and a subtle spicy finish. The best after 2001."

Blend

Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey 2002 is made from a blend of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2002 Lafaurie-Peyraguey has a refined bouquet with touches of beeswax, honeysuckle and dried quince that demands coaxing from the glass. The palate is well balanced with unctuous marmalade and honey on the entry, touches of bitter lemon coming through with fine tension on the finish. This is a 2002 that does want to be outdone by the previous vintage. Whilst it does not reach the level of the 2001, it remains a commendable Sauternes.
