Bottled two months ago, the 2012 Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey has a slightly earthier bouquet compared to the 2011 with touches of lemon peel, honeysuckle and orange zest. The palate is well balanced with a noticeably spicy entry. Moderate weight in the mouth, quite vibrant with good botrytis if not the depth and elegance of the previous vintage. This will probably be earlier drinking than the 2011, but it is finely crafted.
Wine Spectator - 87 See more...
Grapefruit peel, candied lemon, yellow apple and dried pineapple flavors mix here, with a light zip of mirabelle holding the finish. Drink now through 2018. 2,648 cases made.
James Suckling - 90 See more...
Elegant and harmonious with sliced apple, honey and pear character. Medium body, light sweetness and a fresh finish. Drink or hold.

91–93. Barrel sample. Fragrant aromas mark this almost delicate wine. While it does have richness and a full textured character, it's the lively acidity and crispness that gives it great elegance.
