Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Ch. Lafaurie-Peyraguey, 1988
1 x 0.750L
95 / 100 Robert Parker The massively rich, yet fresh, lively 1988 offers a compelling, flowery, honeyed bouquet of vanilla custard, buttery orange/apricot scents, and smoky ceme brulee. The wine's zesty acidity brings everything into extraordinary clarity. With plenty of botrytis evident, this is a full-bodied, super-concentrated, fascinating, powerful yet elegant Sauternes that will age beautifully for 25-30 years. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2030. Last tasted 12/97 Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition Jan 1998
93 / 100 Wine Spectator Yellow and gold color. Beautiful honey, lemon cream pie and dried pineapple. Full-bodied, very sweet and layered, with loads of butterscotch, cream and honey on the finish. Powerful, rich and complex.—'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. http://www.winespectator.com/wine/detail/source/search/not..
