Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. The Château Clos Haut Peyraguey was the one slight disappointment. Like the superior Rabaud-Promis it sports a Germanic bouquet, hints of kerosene infusing the honeyed fruit, perhaps with time erring towards an Alsatian Vendange Tardive. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous entry and finally returning to what you might call a typical Sauternes. It is certainly well balanced, even if the oak still needs a year or two two be fully subsumed. Yet there is a sense of conservatism, refusing to offer more complexity or depth on the finish that prefers to play it safe. Commercially savvy Sauternes? Most certainly, but not one that sets the pulse racing. I would like to revisit this with another couple of years in bottle. eRobertParker.com.February, 2015

The fabulous Clos Haut Peyraguey has a slightly pinched nose that unwinds nicely in the glass to reveal a patina of mineral-rich, lightly botrytized fruit almost pixellated in clarity. The palate is medium-bodied with a waxy texture upon the entry. It is very harmonious, although at this early stage the creamy new oak is just a little dominant and detracts from its tension. However, I am convinced that this will be fully assimilated by the time of bottling and the complexity and harmony of this Sauternes cannot be avoided. I would afford it more bottle age than other Sauternes. Drink 2016-2030+. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate April 2012

Very attractive dried apple, cream and toffee character. Full body, medium sweet and a spicy finish. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

One of the more complex wines from this vintage. Layers of minerality, caramelised apples, white pepper, ginger and toasted brioche. Full bodied, yet the acidity helps to create balance. Brown sugar lingers on the palate resulting in a finish which is a bit too sweet. FINE+RARE
