Other Reviews....
The 2023 Clos Haut-Peyraguey is captivating. Scents of apricot, spice, tangerine peel, honey, marzipan and passion fruit caress the palate. There's a greater focus on freshness these days, but Clos Haut-Peyraguey remains one of the more extroverted wines in Sauternes, as witnessed by its 164 grams of residual sugar. Some of that is surely a reflection of the year in this particular case. Even with its initial exuberance, the 2023 finishes with fine energy and tension. Drink 2028-2053.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

The 2023 Clos Haut-Peyraguey has a more resinous, waxier bouquet than its peers due to the expressiveness of the 95% Sémillon. The palate is very viscous on the entry, harmonious and pure. There’s plenty of botrytized fruit, with superb tension and energy coiled up on the finish. This is an excellent Sauternes that should age gracefully in bottle. Recommended. Drink 2028-2060.

Neal Martin - Vinous

A young Sauternes with a solid center-palate of dried apple, apricot, spice and candied lemon. Medium- to full-bodied, sweet and bright. Attractive focus to this.

James Suckling

Lots of spicy orange, candied ginger, brioche, and sweet peach notes emerge from the 2023 Clos Haut-Peyraguey, a medium to full-bodied, balanced, elegant Sauternes that has lots of upfront charm and balance. It's not the most powerful or over the top wine in the vintage and shines for its overall balance and purity. It's a beautiful, classy Sauternes that will drink nicely right out of the gate.

Caramel, brown sugar, roasted pineapples, vanilla, toasted orange peels, spice, candied oranges and apricots combine and make it happen in the nose, and palate. work together to create the attention seeking perfume. What's not to like? It is unctuous, spicy, racy, lush, ripe, and sweet On the palate, the wine is viscous, sweet, and intense. You find a wealth of honey-coated pineapples, apricots, mangos, marzipan, vanilla, and spice that are as creamy, and unctuous, as they are fresh, and vibrant. The wine blends 80% Semillon with 20% Sauvignon Blanc. Drink from 2028-2049.
