2021 Clos Haut Peyraguey (375ml) Pre-Arrival Offer
The 2021 Clos Haut-Peyraguey is a riveting Sauternes. Orange confit, lemon peel, white flowers, tangerine oil and mint soar across the palate. Exotic and floral overtones develop later, adding to the wine's sheer allure. Even with all of its plushness, the 2021 remains light on its feet. An explosion of heady aromas and flavors punctuates the dazzling finish. Sadly, brutal conditions wiped out most of the crop. Yields were a miserly 6-7 hectoliters per hectare. Drink 2028-2046.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
The 2021 Clos Haut-Peyraguey was picked in four tries through the vineyard, October 1–28. It has a pure, fragrant bouquet of lovely wild honey, acacia and yellow flower scents. The palate is well balanced with a viscous texture counterbalanced by acidity. Not the most complex Sauternes on the block, but persistent and pleasantly spiced on the finish. Drink over the next 15–20 years. Drink 2024-2044.
Neal Martin - Vinous
This is dense and intense with salted caramel, spice, white pepper and dried caramel. Full-bodied and medium-sweet with a long, flavorful finish. Very spicy at the end.
Another beautiful Sauternes is the 2021 Clos Haut Peyraguey, which is based on 60% Semillon and 40% Sauvignon Blanc. It has full-bodied richness and depth as well as bright acidity, a clean, elegant mouthfeel, terrific overall balance, and a great nose of honeyed oranges, peach, mint, and honeyed flowers. Concentrated, vibrant, and balanced, it's a beauty in the making.
Honeysuckle, apricots, flowers and overripe pineapples are drenched with honey and vanilla, finishing with the amount of racy acidity to give everything lift and energy. Drink from 2023-2044.
Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider
Clementines and lemon zest on the nose, such unctuousness straight away, you feel the texture and the richness here, a surprising feat in 2021. It's not so electric on the palate, a little more sombre in terms of acidity but it makes it up in the richness of the flavours and the smoothness of the texture - honey, caramel, toffee cinder, sherbet lemon and creamy apricot. Has a striking charm to it despite being quite an opulent style. Tasted twice. Drinking Window 2024 - 2049.
