A Sauternes Grand Cru Classe from an Exceptional Vintage

The smallest of the Sauternes First Classified Growths, with a total area of 8.5 hectares of vines in one piece, Clos Haut-Peyraguey resides over an exceptional vineyard.

The property situated opposite Chateau d’Yquem enjoys an ideal location, with vineyards planted at the top of the hill of Bommes, in gravelly-sandy soils upon clay subsoils.

Purchased by Bernard Magrez at the end of 2012, Clos Haut-Peyraguey is one of the greatest names in the Sauternes appellation, south of Bordeaux.

Clos Haut-Peyraguey 2018 includes a blend of Semillon (97%) and Sauvignon Blanc (3%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Pale to medium lemon-gold colored, the 2018 Clos Haut-Peyraguey offers up bold, expressive notes of orange peel, lemon meringue pie, candied ginger and lime blossoms with hints of nutmeg and almond croissant. The palate has a toasty/savoriness to complement all that vibrant fruit, along with a silken texture and subtly nutty finish.
