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.
Located in Bommes, in the Sauternes appellation, the Chateau Clos Haut-Peyraguey vineyard covers 8.5 hectares of vines aged 40 years on average. The vines are planted in gravel-sandy soils upon clay subsoils. The vineyard is managed with sustainable viticulture.
A light settling was carried out before fermentation in barrels (of new oak and oak of one previous wine). Regular rackings were carried out during the vinification.
