2020 Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 92

Roasted pineapple, ginger, white peach, flowers and orange, all coated with honey aromas, start the wine off. The wine offers the right balance between sweet and fresh, finishing with vibrant, yellow tropical fruits and vanilla covered with honey and roasted nuts. You find that on the palate and in the sweet fresh finish. 91-93 Pts

White peach, tropical fruits and honeysuckle with a nice vanilla accent create this sweet treat. The lift in the end makes it all work. 90-92 Pts

2018 Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 92

A lighter, forward styled, sweet wine focusing on its Christmas spice, honeyed tangerine, mango and pineapple fruits on the nose and palate. I really like the nutty spice character with the cinnamon and orange sickle notes in the finish. 92 Points

Honey, sugary, summery tropical fruits and apricots are concentrated, but there is a slight lack of botrytis and freshness here. 91 Points

2017 Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 93

Sweet honeyed tropical fruit, vanilla and honeysuckle with a touch of candied citrus peel invites you get into the wine a little deeper. The acidity is there to liven up all the honeyed tropical fruits. 93 Points

Honey, banana, vanilla, apricots and – did I sense a Hawaiian fruit plate? A tropical bakery? Sweet ingenuity is all over the place here. The wine is voluminous with a clean lift in the energetic, apricot confection of a finish. 94 Points

2015 Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 94

Honeyed tropical fruits with a lean to the pineapple and apricot side, this honeyed coated, vanilla tinged treat is rich, yet, fresh on the palate. 94 Points

Honeyed pineapple, papaya, mango, vanilla and apricot on the nose, the wine is sweet, rich, concentrated and powerful. There is a lot of sweet, fat honeyed fruit and botrytis in the mouth. This property has really kicked into high-gear since it was purchased by Bernard Magrez. 93 - 95 Pts

2014 Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 92

Sweet, bright, fresh, lively, medium bodied Sauternes, that has enough lift to allow it to be paired with select savory dishes. The wine was made from a blend of 95% Semillon and 5% Sauvignon Blanc. 92 Points

2013 Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 92

Notes of honeyed apricot, ripe and overripe pineapples with assorted tropical fruits are found in the nose and the palate. There is a line of bracing acidity that keeps everything here alive, adding freshness and length. 92 Points

2011 Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 90

Apple and pears blend with the tropical tones and honeyed, floral notes in this medium bodied, fresh sweet treat. I've liked subsequent vintages better. Obviously on the young side, perhaps it can improve with time. 90 Points

2009 Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 89

I like the fruit, there is just not enough of it to go around. Medium bodied, with sweet, honeyed tropical fruits and vanilla, this is a nice wine, but it is not going to excite most seasoned Sauternes drinkers. 89 Points

2001 Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 91

Apricot, orange rind, pineapple and overripe white peaches with layers of honey, vanilla and nuts. Medium bodied and a fresh, honeyed, pineapple filled finish. This is not going to make old bones. I’d drink this over the next decade to enjoy its sweet, fresh, honeyed fruits. 91 Points

1990 Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey  (Sauternes) 88

Getting long in the tooth at this stage of life, the wine is dropping its fruit and sweetness and developing more brunt sensations and orange characteristics. This requires consumption sooner than later. 88 Points
