Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey 1997
This wine displays gorgeous aromas of coconut, honeyed oranges, tangerines, pineapples, mangoes, and other tropical fruits. It is medium to full-bodied and super-rich, but not a blockbuster. It possesses low acidity (in flavor, but not in terms of analyses), and a long, 40-second finish. This superb 1997 exhibits considerable botrytis, as well as a thick, unctuously-textured style. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025.
