2020-2040 Période au cours de laquelle le vin devrait idéalement être consommé.

Mai 2015 – beckustator.com - Yves Beck 96-98/100
Jaune doré clair. Bouquet élégant et d'une grande complexité. Notes de vaille et de cacao.
On retrouve aussi de la menthe donc de la fraîcheur, de l'écorce de mandarine et du miel.
En bouche le vin est élégant, suave et gras. On ressent bien la structure qui confère un
caractère juteux et révèle parfaitement le fruit. Quelle puissance et quelle densité. Touches
minérales et finale fruitée, persistante. Un très grand Lafaurie. Eric Larramona et Silvio
Denz ou la douceur entreprenante et la performance ! 2025-2064.

The Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey 2014 is a blend of 94% Sémillon, 6% Sauvignon Blanc and 1% Muscadelle picked from 17 September to 27 October (17 days of picking over four tries.) The yields was just 9.4 hectoliter per hectare and it is aged in 40% new oak and there is 137 grams per liter residual sugar. It has a very pure bouquet that should fine mineralité once in bottle. It is not as intense as its peers, but very harmonious and one can see the influence of Prof. Denis Dubourdieu here, instilling more "verve" than recent vintages. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry. Very precise, very poised but linear at the moment, the best part of this Sauternes is the last ‘third’ that is underpinned by vibrant, spicy fruit and a long effervescent tail on the finish. Excellent, through the new wood on the finish suggests that it will benefit from several years in bottle.
