A tribute to Denis Dubourdieu, a refined and great Sauternes wine

The estate

An 1855 Sauternes Premier Grand Cru Classé, Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey is one of the most prestigious names in the iconic sweet wine appellation located in the south of the Bordeaux region.

The vineyard

Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey boasts an exceptional terroir of around 30 hectares within the Sauternes appellation.

The wine

2015 is the last vintage to be vinified by Denis Dubourdieu, an illustrious oenologist, teacher and researcher who founded the Institut de la Vigne et du Vin, but also a major contributor in the modernisation of winegrowing practices in Bordeaux. The label is adorned with the words "Tribute to Denis Dubourdieu".

The blend

Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey 2015 comprises a blend of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle.

The tasting

Colour

This wine is a beautiful golden straw colour.

Nose

The nose is very fine, mixing floral and fruity fragrances (candied fruits) with citrus and spice aromas along with perfect botrytrised notes.

Palate

Crystalline, the palate is seduced by this wine’s elegance as well as its richness. Pure and balanced, the palate is sustained by a racy freshness and a beautiful length. The finish is lively and carried by a superb acidity.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Lafaurie-Peyraguey is pale lemon-gold in color with gorgeous candied citrus peel, orange marmalade and lemon tart notes with hints of musk perfume and honeycomb. The medium to full-bodied palate is rich and opulent with plenty of spicy notes coming through and a very long finish.
