I recall that in barrel, this wine was difficult to assess due to the SO2 present and even tasting it blind in bottle, I pick up on that sulphur. I sincerely hope that this will clear away with time because what is on the palate seems so promising. It is laden with luscious honeyed fruit, orange zest and mandarin, minerals and barley sugar. There is a wonderful viscous texture that remains precise, well-balanced and composed until the very end. I have to insert a question mark due to the sulphur issue, but I recommend either laying the bottle down for several years or affording it 12-24 hours decanting. eRobertParker.com #205 Feb 2013 Neal Martin 93
Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey 2006
Medium gold with honeyed orange marmalade notes and other assorted citrus and rich, full-bodied flavors, this wine has an unctuous texture, and while the viscosity is high, the acidity is adequate for balance and harmony. This is a big, bold, impressively endowed wine to drink over the next 20+ years.

Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey 2002
I suspect most readers will find it hard to get excited about the 2002 vintage for the sweet wines of Barsac and Sauternes after what appears to be a prodigious 2001. However, 2002 is a very fine year for this region, possibly superior to any of the vintages between 2000 and 1991. The wines possess plenty of botrytis, but neither the impressive definition nor supreme elegance of the 2001s. This is a sweet, full-bodied, fat, concentrated, intense effort that was showing well in September, 2003

Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey 1997
This wine displays gorgeous aromas of coconut, honeyed oranges, tangerines, pineapples, mangoes, and other tropical fruits. It is medium to full-bodied and super-rich, but not a blockbuster. It possesses low acidity (in flavor, but not in terms of analyses), and a long, 40-second finish. This superb 1997 exhibits considerable botrytis, as well as a thick, unctuously-textured style. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025.
