Clos Haut Peyraguey 2001
A big time sleeper of the vintage, Clos Haut Peyraguey’s 2001 exhibits abundant amounts of Grand Marnier-like orange flavors intermixed with creme brulee, melted caramels, and hints of pineapples and apricots. Full-bodied, sweet, long, and well-defined, it should drink well for 15+ years

The Clos Haut-Peyraguey has a very pure and honeyed bouquet with marmalade, quince and honeysuckle aromas that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is viscous on the entry with very good weight in the mouth. This is one of the more unctuous Sauternes 2001 with a long spicy finish. I can see this aging beautifully over the next 20-odd years. Drink 2014-2040

Medium lemon-gold colored, the 2010 Clos Haut-Peyraguey features evolved notes of crème brûlée, candle wax and toasted almonds with touches of fresh hay and burnt sugar. Full-bodied, concentrated and seductive, the maturing fruit lends a savoriness to the otherwise opulent character, finishing spicy. 2020 - 2030.
