2021 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey Grand Vin Sec Bordeaux Blanc
In April 2022, the Premier Cru Classé Sauternes winery Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey will release the Lafaurie-Peyraguey Grand Vin Sec Bordeaux Blanc. This extremely beautiful white wine is the dry counterpart of Sauternes In the past, Lafaurie-Peyraguey already made a dry, white wine and the winery has been doing this again for several years. For this wine, vines are used that are not used for the Sauternes: they are old vines that are very suitable for dry vinification. The blend consists of 51% Sauvignon Blanc and 49% Semillon. This dry white wine is made in the style of the better white wines from Pessac-Léognan and can also compete with that level of quality. Think exotic fruit, creamy notes of wood aging and a constantly exciting freshness. This bottle is also decorated with an engraving by René Lalique.
