Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2001

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

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. Geoffrey Binder

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... Wine Spectator.
