The 2019 Clos Haut-Peyraguey is a striking Sauternes from Bernard Magrez. Pineapple, tangerine, white flowers and mint come together in a wine that is deep and rich, yet light on its feet. Understated in feel, with notable balance, moderate sweetness and tons of class, Clos Haut-Peyraguey is simply fabulous. I loved it.

This is layered and clean with dried apples, pears and peaches. Some botrytis spice at the end. Medium to full body and medium-sweet with a delicious finish.

Pale lemon-gold colored, the 2019 Clos Haut-Peyraguey prances out of the glass with notes of candied orange peel, shaved ginger, allspice and honeycomb plus suggestions of lemon marmalade and lime cordial. The palate is already beautifully poised with loads of perfumed citrus layers and just enough freshness to lift the sweet, seductive honeyed characters through the long finish.
