Located in Bommes, this must-know reference among Sauternes wines, reigns over a single-block vineyard of 8.5 hectares, located opposite Château d'Yquem.

Clos Haut-Peyraguey 2017 is poised among the finest Sauternes wines. Precise, harmonious and an intense fruity expression, this wine unfurls itself beautifully on the palate and exhibits a beautiful smoothness along with a vibrant acidity and pure fruity expression. A superb Sauternes wine which promises to develop prodigiously over the years to come.

This is a full and rich wine that is also stylish and balanced. It has acidity, layers of spice and ripe botrytis fruit. It is a powerful wine that will need time, so Best after 2024. Barrel Sample: 95-97
The 2017 Clos Haut-Peyraguey is fabulously rich and dense, not to mention every bit as impressive as it was en primeur. Creamy, nuanced, powerful, sumptuous, the 2017 possesses tons of nuance and sheer depth. Lemon confit, baked pineapple, mint, honey, chamomile and apricot are some of the many aromas and flavors that develop in the glass. The balance of unctuousness and freshness is beguiling.

The 2017 Clos Haut-Peyraguey showed brilliantly and is another stunning Sauternes from this great vintage. White peach, honeycomb, flowers, and plenty of botrytis notes all emerge from the glass, and it’s nicely textured and full-bodied, with a beautiful balance between its fruit and acidity. It’s already delicious yet should evolve for two decades.

A Sauternes with lovely harmony and finesse with dried fruit, mushrooms and peaches. Some pears, too. This is very subtle. Medium-bodied with beautiful sweetness (not too much) and creamy texture. Shows length and finesse. Drinkable now, yet it will last a very long time.
93 Wine Spectator
Very lush and forward, with creamed pear, warm peach melba and hazelnut notes set against a backdrop of warm piecrust. Bold and broad through the finish. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now through 2032.

The 2017 Clos Haut-Peyraguey offers up aromas of key lime pie, candied orange peel and pineapple upside-down cake with hints of peach blossoms and gingerbread. It has loads of layers on the satin-textured palate with bold freshness and a long, spicy finish. Rating: 92+
