2014 Clos Haut Peyraguey Sauternes
Fantastic new Sauternes from this famous clasified growth Sautnernes. We are lucky to have an excellent Sauternes that comes in at a value relative to other recent offerings, and we are refreshed to learn that the kosher blend is equally as great as the non kosher based on blind tastings. Limited and Ships now.
Notes reflect the standard edition: "The 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." Neal Martin
