2022 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey Grand Vin Sec Bordeaux Blanc
Premier Cru Classé Sauternes Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey winery releases the Lafaurie-Peyraguey Grand Vin Sec Bordeaux Blanc. This exceptionally beautiful white wine is the dry equivalent of Sauternes. Lafaurie-Peyraguey used to make a dry white wine and the winery has been doing so again for several years. Vines are used for this wine that are not used for Sauternes: they are old vines that are very suitable for dry vinification. The blend consists of 67% Sauvignon Blanc and 33% Sémillon. 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 of exotic fruit, creamy notes of wood aging and a constantly exciting freshness. This bottle is also decorated with an engraving by René Lalique.
