A harmonious, lively and expressive Sauternes
The smallest of the First Classified Growths of Sauternes by the official classification of 1855, Clos Haut-Peyraguey enjoys an exceptional terroir, opposite from the legendary Château d’Yquem. Planted at the highest point of a plateau in the commune of Bommes, the vineyard of Clos Haut-Peyraguey is located on diverse soils, mixing sandy gravel and clay, and making for incredibly complex wines.
Vintage after vintage, Clos Haut-Peyraguey consistently recreates its noble Sautenres wines, recognised for their great breadth and personality.
The Clos Haut-Peyraguey 2017 is truly representative of the great wines of Sauternes. With its precision, harmony and intensity of fruit, the wine expresses itself fully on the palate with a beautiful sweetness lightened by a bright acidity that reveals the purity of the fruit. The blend developed by Michel Rolland perfectly balances opulent Sémillon (95% of the blend) with Sauvignon Blanc (5% of the blend). A superb Sauternes wine with a bright future ahead of it.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2017 Clos Haut-Peyraguey has loads of ginger, allspice and beeswax notes over guava, mango, orange blossoms and apricots. The palate is rich and spicy, possessing great poise and loads of layers, with a spicy finish.
