Description

A harmonious, lively and expressive Sauternes wine

The estate

With its first harvest carried out in 1618, Clos Haut-Peyraguey is a historic property in Sauternes. A Sauternes First Growth of 1855, this property is also the smallest in the appellation, with a surface of just 8.5 hectares. Located on the highest areas of the Bommes hill, the Clos Haut-Peyraguey takes its name from Peyraguey which means hill or promontory. Acquired in 2012 by Bernard Magrez, Clos Haut-Peyraguey is one of the most beautiful classified growths of Sauternes.

The vineyard

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. The vines are 40 years old on average and are planted on gravelly-sandy soils and rest on clay subsoils. The vineyard is managed using integrated viticultural practices.

Vinification and ageing

The blend
