Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey 1990
€ 78,65 (incl. BTW)
The 1990 exhibits a deep golden corn-like color, followed by sensational aromatics (honeyed citrus, pineapple and pear intertwined with smoke and creme brulee-like notes). In the mouth, the wine is massive and full-bodied, with an unctuous texture, and powerful, juicy flavors that possess mouth-staining extract, glycerin, and viscosity. This is a blockbuster-styled, sweet Sauternes with at least 30 years of longevity.
Gorgeous, classy, appealing creamy texture, lemon, honey and dried apricot flavors, medium body and sweetness and a long finish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 19/20 points.
