Clos Haut-Peyraguey 2005

Clos Haut-Peyraguey – 1st Growth Sauternes

Clos Haut Peyraguey, SauternesBill Blatch: Here is another château that had been off the Bordeaux market due to exclusive distribution, and also because of its size (it is the smallest 1st growth in Sauternes), nobody seems to be too familiar with the wines. However, this 2005 is a real expression of what this little estate can do: rich and smooth but tremendously fine-tuned and precise, with a definite new oak taste that contributes to the freshness. This is the first of the string of recent excellent vintages here. Good for drinking now but even better after a few years.
