Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey
For all our readers we will now be bringing you two regular weekly full profiles from the 11 & and upcoming 12th editions of Wine behind the label with our ratings. This should give you an excellent idea of what you can enjoy when purchasing a full guide. Here Neville Blech profiles Ch. Clos Haut-Peyraguey in Sauternes.
Ch. Clos Haut-Peyraguey (Sauternes 1er CC)
Very small Sauternes property. There are just 12 ha of vineyards, 90% of which are Sémillon, the balance Sauvignon Blanc. Quality is good to very good but the wine has in the past, before the estate was purchased by Bernard Magrez, the owner of CH. PAPE CLÉMENT and several other properties in Bordeaux and elsewhere in 2012, lacked the depth and intense concentration of the best of the other First Growths of the appellation.
The style is more one of finesse and elegance than sheer weight and concentration. Very good in 2007, and consistent from 2013 onwards, but care may need to be taken with some of the older vintages. The second wine, Château Haut Bommes was renamed Symphonie de Haut Peyraguey in 2014. (DM/NB)
