The Story

The Sauternes of the insiders... The vineyard of Clos Haut-Peyraguey, nestled at the highest point of the plateau of Bommes in Sauternes region is at the heart of the Premiers Crus Classés in 1855. It sits opposite to the Chateau d'Yquem, and its immediate neighbors are called Rayne-Vigneau or Château Guiraud. This ancient barony has survived the centuries since its first harvest in 1618, enjoying a unique terroir and climatic conditions combined with an ancestral know-how enabling it to make its grapes play a symphony of excellence giving a unique and prestigious golden wine : the Sauternes of Clos Haut-Peyraguey.

 

Temperature controlled settling. Alcoholic fermentation in oak barrels (new or one year-old). Racking on a regular basis.

Sight: Attractive, intense, radiant gold, with golden, with slight honey hints.

Smell: Intense, complex nose. The seductive candied honey and orange notes emerge first, then secondary aromas of almond, apricot and vanilla appear.

Taste: Smooth, impressively dense flavor, with notes of orange and apricot. Beautiful enduring length. The essence of the grape. This wine is an example of the excellence of Sauternes wines: powerful, structured and elegant, with notes of fruits and intense flowers, with great aging possibilities.
