Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes, 2006, 37.5cl
Chateau Lafaurie Peyraguey is a historic Sauternes property located in the village of Bommes. The first traces of the estate can be found as early as 1618, when Le Sieur Peyraguey was the first known owner. Since 2014, Silvio Denz is the sole holder of this 1er Grand Cru Classé in 1855. The 36 hectare vineyard is planted on silico-gravelly and clay-gravelly soils.
The 2006 Lafaurie Peyraguey has a complex bouquet: honey, white chocolate, quince and dried pineapple scents that billow from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with marmalade and bitter orange on the entry, a fine line of acidity with a harmonious mandarin and grapefruit finish that carries ample botrytis with it.
