Chateau Lafaurie Peyraguey 2004

Having written up the 1983 vintage of this producer the other day, it made sense to have a look at one of their newer releases (2005 is their latest).  The 2004 is very good.  An aroma of toffee apples, white nectarines and hay.  The palate has some length, with some brown sugar flavours.  A lovely wine.  85 points.

Abv: 13.5%
Price: $43
Would I buy it having tasted it? Yes
