Château Lafaurie Peyraguey

Château Cap de Faugères

Côtes de Castillon Merlot Blend 2011

2011 vintage. Estate with 46 hectares of vineyards owned by Silvio Denz (also Faugères, Péby-Faugères and Roycheron in Saint-Emilion , and Lafayrie-Peyraguey in Sauternes). Sometimes criticised for the modern style, the truth is in the glass. And this Cap de Faugères from a difficult vintage absolutely delivers for the price (9,90 euro). Deep red colour with only a slight evolution at the rim. The nose is a bit jammy, but the mouth is much better with the ripe fruit balanced by the acidity and well-tamed tannin. It may be not the most subtle wine, but it's a very attractive right bank Bordeaux at its peak and a strong effort for the vintage. — 3 years ago

Vignobles Rousset Peyraguey Atropos White Blend 2008

A toasty nose with honey and apricot. There is a bit of beeswax too. The mouthfeel is very interesting because it's thick and extremely sweet on one hand but it's balanced by a massive acid backbone that brings loads of freshness. It stays there for a very long while and the apricot and honey note and somehow sticks to the palate for a good minute. We paired it with a homemade chocolate cake (made by my daughter). Delicious sauternes ! — 2 years ago

Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey

Sieur Sauternes White Blend 2014

Chateau dates back to 13th century, originally used as fortress. 1st known owner was Sieur Raymond Peyraguey, purchasing the property in 1618. In January 2014, Silvio Denz purchased Chateau from GDF Suez. Balanced and fruity, this ripe, sweet wine delivers both botrytis-like character and generous fruit. It has fine acidity to cut through the richness, giving intense sweetness. Drinks well. Bottle age will benefit. — 4 years ago
