Clos Haut-Peyraguey 2015

First Grand Cru Classé in Sauternes in 1855

Clos Haut-Peyraguey is the smallest of the 1st Grands Crus Classés de Sauternes in 1855. Its surface area is 8.5 ha, all in one piece within an enclosure, on the northeast slope of the property, opposite Château d'Yquem. Peyraguey, whose name means hill or promontory, is an ancient barony acquired in the 18th century by the President of the Bordeaux Parliament. Monsieur Lafaurie acquired the estate during the French Revolution. In 1879, the estate was split in two: the higher lands at the top of the Bommes hill were named Clos Haut- Peyraguey. The Garbay-Pauly family owned the estate from 1914, until Bernard Magrez acquired the 1st Grand Cru Classé at the end of 2012.

A fairly dark yellow with the first hints of gold, brilliant. A classic, ripe Sauternes bouquet, with lots of honey, raisins and dried apricots. Juicy, soft and elegant on the palate, the wine has already found its harmony.

James Suckling

"A bright, lively Sauternes with aromas and flavors of dried peach and apple. Full-bodied, medium sweet with botrytized spice and character on the finish."


Wine Enthusiast

"This wine is light with lovely acidity and a youthful texture that brings both botrytis and ginger spice flavors. The wine is already delicious, but its tight texture will allow it to age well."
