Clos Haut Peyraguey Sauternes 2012

Details of wine

Peyraguey, whose name means hill, is an ancient barony acquired in the eighteenth century. In 1879 the domain was divided into two parts. One part was baptized Lafaurie-Peyraguey in homage to Monsieur Lafaurie, former owner, who gave prestige to the domain. The higher lands, on top of the hill Bommes, are called Clos Haut-Peyraguey. The meticulous care offered to the vineyard (16 hectares of Sauternes) allow, even in difficult times, where quality has to be extremely precise, to produce a Clos Haut-Peyraguey that deserves its name followed by the words "cru classé in 1855". The property belongs since 2012 to Bernard Magrez
