2001 was a great vintage for sweet Bordeaux and the Lafaurie Peyraguey is a fine example of how inexpensive Sauternes can be given the exceptional quality of the wine. It has turned a satisfyingly deep orange with a lovely weight and sweetness to match but still retains a freshness that keeps it clean. One of our regular Yquem customers stated this was the equal of any Yquem he’d had recently.
