Clos Haut-Peyraguey is a division of the Peyraguey cru and inherited the richest part of the famous Haut-Bommes terroir, which explains the amplitude and unctuousness of its wines. It owes its tonicity to its aromas of bitter orange peel and to the happy acidity that underpins it.
Formerly owned by Mrs. Langlois-Pauly, who had put her heart and soul into it, the cru was bought in 2012 by Mr. Magrez.
Bettane & Desseauve : 90/100
Quarin : 89/100 « Joli nez intense, fruité, épicé, frais. Bouche agréable, au toucher caressant, évoluant vanillée, sur une note d’ananas, une longueur normale et sans aspect aérien. »
Burtschy : 93-94/100 « Robe pâle à reflets verts avec des arômes d’abricots. Le vin est souple et le botrytis noble, la finale est belle et tendue par de beaux amers. »
Galloni (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « The 2020 Clos Haut-Peyraguey is wonderfully sensual and polished. Lemon confit, passionfruit, pineapple, coconut and a touch of new oak give the 2020 its exotic, alluring personality. Creamy and wonderfully expressive, the 2020 opens nicely with a bit of time in the glass. It has been absolutely terrific in two separate tastings. »
Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The palate is lively and elegant, offering seductive quince, crème brûlée and fudge notes, and fanning out gently on the finish. Generous, but it needs a little more nerve on the finish. »
