Incredible, young Sauternes with so much spicy, dried-mushroom, dust and powdered-earth character on the nose and palate, Full-bodied with a medium-sweet palate and a finish that is endless. Apricots, dried lemons and peaches. Caramel. Great balance. Greatest modern vintage? 6,000 bottles made. - James Suckling

The 2021 Lafaurie-Peyraguey is one of the wines of the year in Sauternes. Creamy and beautifully resonant in the glass, it offers up a compelling mélange of pineapple, mint, ginger, orange confit, chamomile, passionfruit and floral-infused honey. The 2021 is exotic and wonderfully deep, yet not at all heavy. It's too bad Sauternes is such an out of favor category, as great wines like this don't get much attention. That's a shame, because Lafaurie-Peyraguey is truly magnificent in 2021. Tasted two times. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Pale lemon-yellow in color, the 2021 Lafaurie-Peyraguey explodes with tropical fruit notes of green mango, pineapple tart, and dragon fruit, with touches of chalk dust, white pepper, and candle wax. The palate delivers wonderful tension, with lots of tightly wound, intense layers and a crisp backbone, finishing with impressive persistence. Residual sugar around 130 g/l. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

The 2021 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey is terrific, if not the finest vintage I've tasted from this château. Coming from 93% Semillon, 6% Sauvignon, and 1% Muscadelle, representing a selection of 65% of the production, it offers a beautiful perfume of ripe peach, honeyed citrus, marmalade and flower oil. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has plenty of opulence and sweetness yet stays pure, focused, and vibrant, with a great finish. It's a gorgeous Sauternes in the making. - Jeb Dunnuck

Pale gold in colour, amber refelctions, with exotic fruits on the opening beats of apricot, pineapple and mango, fresh acidities that give a clean and juicy edge to the wine, and this finishes with knife edge clarity, but with plenty of power. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Crisp green apple, lemon, elderflower, this could pass for a dry white wine on the nose - super expressive. Lively on the palate, fresh and upfront with such an ease of drinking. It's a gentle style in that the weight, texture, acidity and sweetness are all soft and calm not too excessive or overt. It's very charming in a subtle quiet way with hints of orange, almond, hazelnut but also a salinity underneath giving an added nuance that some of the others don't have. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

Yellow-gold. Rich and intense with subtle, tropical-fruit notes. Rich and concentrated with layers of fruit. Round, full, unctuous but balanced, that tangy acidity driving through and lingering on the finish. Rich but harmonious. - Jancis Robinson
