Reviews for 2001 Clos Haut Peyraguey Sauternes Blend

WS 97
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, September 2004
Smells like pure caramel with just a hint of dried apricot. Full-bodied ultrasweet and fabulously concentrated. This goes on for minutes. Coats your palate but shows fab acidity. Big juicy young sticky...

The Clos Haut-Peyraguey has a very pure and honeyed bouquet with marmalade, quince and honeysuckle aromas that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is viscous on the entry with very good weight in the mouth. This is one of the more unctuous Sauternes 2001 with a long spicy finish. I can see this aging beautifully over the next 20-odd years. - Neal Martin

Pale orange-gold color. High-toned aromas of apricot, creamed corn, honey and white raisin; gives a slightly roasted impression.

High-toned aromas of apricot, creamed corn, honey and white raisin; gives a slightly roasted impression. Fat, full, superripe and sweet, with an unctuous, toffee-like richness buffered by sound acids and lifted by a metallic minerally nuance. A very large-scaled '01 that finishes with an impressive wave of sweet fruit. A superb performance for this property.

95% semillon 5% sauvignon blanc. Vines are planted on a gravel sand mix on top of a clay subsoil. Barrel fermented then aged in 60% new oak. This displays a fat toasty character and an almost marshmallow-like texture... 95% semillon 5% sauvignon blanc. Vines are planted on a gravel sand mix on top of a clay subsoil. Barrel fermented then aged in 60% new oak. This displays a fat toasty character and an almost marshmallow-like texture. Moderate acidity checks the intense sweetness. Heaps of ripe stone fruits marzipan and quince flavor along with touches of toasted coconut on the palate lead to a finish filled with spicy ginger flavor. Lots of stuffing here. Enjoy over the next 10-15 years.
