Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker, Jancis Robinson, and Suckling

The nose of the 2017 Lafaurie-Peyraguey explodes with bombastic tropical fruits, stone fruit preserves, spices and florals with honey-nut nuances and a waft of crushed rocks. The palate is rich, concentrated, spicy, layered and fresh, finishing long. The blend is 95% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon Blanc.

— Lisa Perrotti-Brown (16/03/2020)Robert Parker Wine Advocate Vintage 2017 - 95 PARKER

Deep gold. Botrytis. Lots of sweetness but lots of subtlety too. Pungent lychee notes. Grainy texture promises well for the future. Still quite chewy.

— Jancis Robinson (10/11/2021)JancisRobinson.com Vintage 2019 - 18 JANCIS ROBINSON

A wine with fresh, clean botrytis influence and lemon curd, sliced apricot, dried apricot and apricot confiture. This has striking purity with such intense flavors of peach and apricot custard, apricot pastry and a very elegant and supple, fleshy-fruit texture with acidity that holds such freshness on the finish. Elegance and freshness meets power and purity. Concentrated in every respect – flavors, sugar and acidity. Drink now or age for a considerable time, as you prefer.
