($43-$49) Pale orange-gold color. High-toned aromas of apricot, creamed corn, honey and white raisin; gives a slightly roasted impression. Fat, full, superripe and sweet, with an unctuous, toffee-like richness buffered by sound acids and lifted by a metallic minerally nuance. A very large-scaled '01 that finishes with an impressive wave of sweet fruit. A superb performance for this property.

About This Producer


Covering approximately 23 ha of Sauternes, Clos Haut-Peyraguey was split from the larger Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey estate in 1878 to operate as an independent Chateau. The current small estate produces close to 3,500 cases of 1er Cru Sauternes from vineyards comprised of 83% Semillon, 15% Sauvignon Blanc, and 2% Muscadelle. Elegant and crisp in most vintages, in superb years it is a particularly fine and collectible example of Sauternes.
