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.

Wine EnthusiastBarrel Sample. Opulent honey notes dominate the flavor of this super-rich wine. A dry core of botrytis gives an almost mineral character to the wine. Full bodied, a blend of apricot and crisp pear notes are generous and concentrated.

Wine AdvocateThe Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey 2014 is a blend of 95% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon Blanc picked between 16 September and 25 October. Michel Rolland actually told me that Bernard Magrez had insisted he oversee the wine himself despite Michel's protesting that Sauternes was not his area of expertise. Well, this is a damn fine Sauternes. It has captivating purity on the nose with that Sémillon in full flight, almost Climens-like in style. The palate is unctuous on the entry, the acidity nice judged, perhaps just a tad straight-laced on the finish but very pure and sensual. This is a very fine Clos Haut Peyraguey that could surpass recent vintages.

Wine SpectatorOn the fresher side, with honeysuckle and orange blossom notes leading the way before more typical glazed peach, creamed yellow apple and yellow plum flavors flow through. Both the rich and floral details mingle through the finish. Shows lovely integration already, and is approachable now. Drink now through 2035. 900 cases made.
