Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) A thick, unctuous style, with marzipan, dried pineapple, mango and dried guava notes leading to a good bolt of toasted almond and pie crust on the finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) Pale orange-gold. Vibrant aromas of tangerine, pineapple, coconut and brown spices, with a slightly roasted botrytis character. Concentrated and lightly saline, with bright, firm acidity giving a penetrating quality to the pineapple and spice flavors. Offers an exhilarating sugar/acid balance and finishes with lovely lingering spicy perfume. Still a bit youthfully rigid: I'd give this a few years to harmonize. Lafaurie-Peyraguey. - International Wine Cellar
