Tasting Notes

Another mind-blowing Sauternes with dense and concentrated fruit, and incredible depth and power. Spices galore. Very sweet. 260 grams residual sugar. Twice the normal year. French TBA? 95% semillon and 5% sauvignon blanc.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2023

The 2022 Lafaurie-Peyraguey has a very fragrant, floral bouquet with pure botrytised fruit, wonderful delineation and sense of mineralité. The palate is smooth and sensual, dried honey and quince, lightly spiced with a gentle crescendo on its polished and long finish. This is a very strong follow-up to the 2021.

Neal Martin, vinous.com, May 2023

The 2022 Lafaurie-Peyraguey is a blend of 94% Semillon, 5% Sauvignon Blanc, and 1% Muscadelle, with 145 g/L residual sugar. Medium straw in color, it charges out of the gate with gregarious notes of mango pudding, juicy pineapple, and honeycomb, followed by hints of candied ginger and orange blossoms. The palate is full, rich, and decadently spicy, with a lively backbone to balance and epic length.
