2001 Clos Haut-Peyraguey, Sauternes

SKU #1072367 97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark ***Highly Recommended*** 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. (JS) Inner quote mark (9/2004)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Caramel, praline, dried mango pit and dried papaya. Full-bodied and very sweet with layers of apricot and tropical fruit leading to a very oily, nutty finish. The raw power and intensity are unmistakable, but a fine line of acidity still keeps this flowing and food friendly. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (NM) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Pale orange-gold color. 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. Inner quote mark (7/2004)
