On the fresher side, with honeysuckle and orange blossom notes leading the way before more typical glazed peach, creamed yellow apple and yellow plum flavors flow through. Both the rich and floral details mingle through the finish. Shows lovely integration already, and is approachable now. Drink now through 2035. (JM)
The 2014 Haut-Peyraguey is a very pretty Sauternes from Bernard Magrez. Enticing scents of pineapple, lemon confit, white flowers and new oak are impossible to resist. Soft, airy and weightless on the palate, the 2014 has lost a bit of the exuberance it showed as a young wine, but it has gained in finesse. This understated, pretty Sauternes has plenty to offer.

Aromas of lemon curd, cream and hints of honey. Full-bodied and medium sweet with botrytis spices and honey undertones. Wonderful length and a delicious finish. A sweet and intense wine. Drink now or hold.
The Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey 2014 is a blend of 95% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon Blanc picked between 16 September and 25 October. Michel Rolland actually told me that Bernard Magrez had insisted he oversee the wine himself despite Michel's protesting that Sauternes was not his area of expertise. Well, this is a damn fine Sauternes. It has captivating purity on the nose with that Sémillon in full flight, almost Climens-like in style. The palate is unctuous on the entry, the acidity nice judged, perhaps just a tad straight-laced on the finish but very pure and sensual. This is a very fine Clos Haut Peyraguey that could surpass recent vintages. (NM)
Opulent honey notes dominate the flavor of this super-rich wine. A dry core of botrytis gives an almost mineral character to the wine. Full bodied, a blend of apricot and crisp pear notes are generous and concentrated. (RV)
