Buy Ch Lafaurie Peyraguey Sauternes 2003***
Wine Advocate 89 points - Ex-chateau bottle tasted blind in Sauternes. There is an adhesive-like scent on the nose of the Lafaurie-Peyraguey ?03, with almond and vanilla infusing the orange and marmalade scents. There is certainly a lot of glycerol here. The palate is nicely composed on the entry and the oak appears more integrated than on the nose, allowing the marmalade, fig jam and spicy flavors to flourish on the viscous finish. This is a slight improvement upon previous bottles that I have tasted. Drink now-2019. Tasted April 2013.  (Jun 2013)

Wine Spectator 97 points - Very, very intense aromas of dried apricot and lemon. Honey, syrup and Golden Delicious. Full-bodied, viscous and very sweet. Pour it on pancakes. Love it. And drink it. Who can wait? Best after 2010. 6,250 cases made. Ranked #6 in Wine Spectator's 2006 Top 100 list.
