97 points "#6 in the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2006! 97 points Wine Spectator: "Lafaurie Peyraguey has produced some of Sauternes' most powerful wines for more than two decades. The 2003 is no exception... Bordeaux's hottest summer on record produced a full-bodied dessert wine with incredibly intense apricot and honey aromas. To achieve that concentration, the château uses more than 90 percent Sémillon, planted on 100 acres of gravel." (11/06)" Best 2010-2016
