($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.

A big time sleeper of the vintage, Clos Haut Peyraguey's 2001 exhibits abundant amounts of Grand Marnier-like orange flavors intermixed with creme brulee, melted caramels, and hints of pineapples and apricots. Full-bodied, sweet, long, and well-defined, it should drink well for 15+ years.

Smells like pure caramel with just a hint of dried apricot. Full-bodied, ultrasweet and fabulously concentrated. This goes on for minutes. Coats your palate but shows fab acidity. Big, juicy young sticky.
