Vinous - Score: 95 (2019 Aug.)

The 2010 Lafaurie-Peyraguey was the only recent vintage served at the property after the flight of pre-war bottles. This shows better than the example tasted in 2014, principally because it has lost some of its reserve on the nose and instead offers enticing honeysuckle, quince, orange blossom and peach skin scents that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is well balanced, still with that tang of lemongrass on the entry. There is good weight and botrytis concentration, maybe a little more viscosity than I remember, and a pure, caressing finish that conveys energy and precision. This is turning into a beautiful Lafaurie-Peyraguey. Tasted at the Lafaurie-Peyraguey retrospective at the château.
