Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey 2015

1er Grand Cru Classé Sauternes

Juin 2016 Vinum

19/20

Transzendente, blumig-fruchtige Aromatik, immense Dichte, ewige Länge, perfektionistische Machart: besitzt Fülle, Rasse, Dichte, aber auch alle Anlagen zu grosser Finesse und Eleganz. 2019 bis 2050
A transcendent floral and fruity bouquet, immense density, endless length, perfectionist style: rich, spirited and dense, yet with full potential for great finesse and elegance. 2019 to 2050

 

Mai 2016 La Revue du Vin de France Roberto Petronio

18,5-19,5/20
Classé dans "Ses quatre Sauternes à acheter en priorité": " Tirant la quintessence de ce grand terroir, ce cru classé s'impose au sommet par sa pureté"

Joli nez engageant, beau conflit, élevage élégant qui se manifeste par une petit note beurrée. Fruit net et pur. Belle vibration en bouche grâce à une sensation d’acidité qui équilibre une liqueur apportant une petite rondeur. Matière élancée et raffinée. Finale sur le pamplemousse jaune.

 

Mai 2016 Vinifera Jacques Perrin

Classé parmi les vins exceptionnels

En dépit de sa richesse, il a gardé un côté cristallin. La profondeur de goût ainsi que l’expression lumineuse de ce vin sont remarquables. Il évolue en crescendo et culmine dans une grande finale.

 

Mai 2016 Bernard Burtschy

17,5/20
Les bordeaux blancs liquoreux 2015, un millésime tout en élégance

De robe paille dorée, le vin se présente avec un joli nez fin, paille coupée sur fond de fruits confits et d’épices. Le vin est d’une grande élégance, il ne possède pas sa puissance habituelle, mais plus de fraîcheur et une belle complexité, le milieu de bouche affiche certes un petit creux passager, mais la belle acidité porte la finale. Très beau vin.
65 sémillon, 35 sauvignon. 5-20 ans.

19/20
Immense réussite, une des plus complètes du secteur, merveilleux nez de botritysation parfaite du raisin, assez proche de celui d’Yquem, en un rien plus massif, grande finale, un sauternes à son plus somptueux et certainement le vin le plus complet des vingt dernières années de la propriété.
Bravo à l’équipe réunie par Eric Larramona.

 

April 2016 Jeff Leve The Wine Cellar Insider

9496/100

From 65% Semillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc, the wine smells great with its nutty, pineapple, vanilla and lemon custard aromatic profile. Fresh and zippy, the wine is rich, fat, sweet, and dense with the right amount of acidity to keep all that sweetness in check.

 

April 2016 Vinous Antonio Galloni

93-95/100

Silvio Denz's 2015 Lafaurie-Peyraguey is terrific. Understated and wonderfully nuanced, the 2015 exudes class. The tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, apricot, honey and chamomile notes are beautifully sketched. There is so much to like. The blend is approximately 96% Sémillon, 4% Sauvignon, 1% Muscadelle from yields of just 10 hectoliters per hectare. Denis Dubourdieu consults.

 

April 19, 2016 Decanter – Ian D’Agata

93/100

Perfumed nose of acacia honey, crystallised ginger, lemon verbena, juniper and fresh citrus fruit. Impeccable balance to the acid-sugar-tannin ratio and boasts noteworthy refinement. One of the best Sauternes of the vintage; refined yet powerful.

 

Avril 12, 2016 Yves Beck

96-98/100

Jaune doré. Bouquet complexe, expressif, aux notes fruitées et épicées. Notes de mirabelles et d'abricots avec une touche de citron. Oranges amères confites. Attaque fruitée, suave et concentrée. Le vin a de la minéralité et du muscle avec une belle structure acide qui donne une perspective d'avenir exceptionnelle. En fin de bouche je relève une touche d'amertume, parfaitement emballée, qui contrecarre la puissance et la sucrosité. Un vin à suivre, doté d'une finale fruitée, caractérielle et persistante. 2025-2055

 

Avril 11, 2016 Terre de Vins Yohan Castaing

« Coup de Cœur »
18,5/20

Eric Larramona poursuit son travail de longue haleine sur ce cru. La qualité du travail à la vigne, l’intelligence du millésime, le sens du liquoreux, tout concoure pour faire de Lafaurie-Peyraguey un cru majeur de l’appellation.
Trame aromatique dynamique, fraîche, noble, pure. Grosse densité soutenue par une fraîcheur racée, de l’allonge et un bel équilibre. Superbe liqueur. Un sauternes brillant et magnifique.

 

April 5, 2016 Wine Spectator - James Molesworth
93-96/100

A ripe, unctuous style, with a big core of nectarine, peach, mango and quince flavors, backed by lots of spice and ginger. Among the more backward examples at this early stage, but everything is here.

 

April 4, 2016 James Suckling

95-96/100

A purity and finesse to this young Sauternes with mushroom, botrytis and flower character. The sweetness, fruit, phenolics and acidity balance it out to an ethereal level. Lovely finish.

 

April 2016 Markus del Monego

94/100

Intense yellow color with green hue. Expressive nose with aroma reminiscent of juicy apricots and ripe pear, candied lemon peel and hints of lime-zest in the background.

 

April 2016 René Gabriel

19/20

Mitteldunkles Gelb, somit recht intensiv, leuchtender Rand. Enorm viel frische Früchte zeigend, Pfirsich, Ananas, zart leimige Botrytis, Vanillin und dann auch Lindenblüten im zweiten Ansatz zeigend, welcher auch eine feine Mineralik in sich birgt. Elegant fliessender Gaumen, er zeigt Nonchalance und Harmonie und auch hier kommt die Fruchtfrische wieder voll durch. Hier hat man die Finessen dem Reichtum vorgezogen. Und das wird wohl dann auch gleich die neue Marschrichtung für kommende Jahrgänge sein. Trinkbar: bis 2055.

The Story

At the heart of the great terroirs of the Sauternes region, Lafaurie-Peyraguey’s vineyard is located on the terrace of Sauternes gravel, 70 metres above sea level, just next to Château d’Yquem. The “Enclos” and “Maisons Rouges” plots represent the historic heart of Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey’s magnificent terroir, consisting of gravel from the Quaternary era which was deposited here more than 600,000 years ago, on a substratum of Aquitania limestone. 

Silvio Denz’s objective is to produce very fine wines from the best terroirs. Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey will be made from the vines of the great historic 1855 terroirs in order to enhance its quality. 

Harvesting: manual with successive rounds of highly selective picking (4 to 7, depending on the year) during the ripening period, in order to preserve the desired aromatic precision 

Environmental integrity: sustainable viticulture, no chemical herbicides 

Vinification: in fine-grained French oak barrels, with 40 to 70% new oak barrels each year depending on the vintage. Fermentation at between 17°C and 23°C in the air-conditioned, humidity-controlled winery, for 18 to 30 days depending on the batch 

Ageing: in French oak barrels, with 40 to 70% new oak barrels depending on the vintage, for 18 to 20 months 

Average production: 40000 bottles 

Second wine: La Chapelle de Lafaurie-Peyraguey
