A lively and bright Sauternes with dried peach and apple aromas and flavors. Full body, medium sweet with botrytis spice and character at the finish.
The 2015 Clos Haut-Peyraguey is much more delicate in bottle than it was from barrel. Floral and lifted, with pretty mango, pineapple, apricot and yellow flower nuances, the 2015 is absolutely striking in its beauty. Above all else, what I admire about the Clos Haut-Peyraguey is the expression of richness with no excess weight. This beautifully layered, polished Sauternes is a winner from Bernard Magrez. (AG)
Barrel Sample. This is a light wine with fine acidity and a young texture that brings in both botrytis and gingery spice flavors. The wine is already delicious, but the tight texture will allow it to age well. (RV)
Sweet spices, tropical fruit nectar and spicy clover honey on the nose and rich palate. Finishes very long and thick, with a tactile quality and lingering citrus appeal. A knockout Sauternes in the making.
The 2015 Clos Haut Peyraguey is a blend of 95% Semillon and 5% Sauvignon Blanc, cropped at just 14 hectoliters per hectare between September 7 and October 15. It has a perfumed and quite floral bouquet with dried yellow flowers intermixed with dried honey and quince aromas. The palate is very well balanced with pure botrytised fruit, not the most complex Sauternes of the vintage, but tensile with a citrus-fresh, blood orange-tinged finish. Enjoy this over the next 5-25 years. (NM)
A broad, unctuous style, with creamed mango and papaya notes that impart a tropical feel, while light green tea, honeysuckle and singed almond notes help this along. Long glazed peach echo on the finish. Drink now through 2037. (JM)
