A harmonious, lively and expressive Sauternes

Product of a very promising vintage for sweet wines, Clos Haut-Peyraguey 2017 is one of the most prestigious and unmissable wines of the Sauternes appellation, 30 km south of Bordeaux.

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 Chateau 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, recognized 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 Semillon (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.
