In Sauternes, the humidity was more pronounced than in the other appellations, leading to a decline in water stress. After a rainy spell, the warm days of September led to the occurrence of botrytis cinerea and favoured the concentration of the grapes. The harvest was carried out from 11 to 14 October.
This Lafaurie-Peyraguey Golden Edition 2019 comprises a blend of Semillon (93%) and Sauvignon Blanc (7%)
The complex and racy nose reveals a candied character dominated by citrus notes.
