Wine Spectator: 92
Juicy, with a solid core of maple-laced orange blossom, peach, mango and persimmon flavors backed by singed almond and crème brûlée notes on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2034. 2,417 cases made.
Wine Advocate: 93
The pale lemon colored 2016 Clos Haut-Peyraguey reveals a veritable cornucopia of tropical notes—guava, mango and pineapple—with nuances of spiced pears, jasmine, fallen leaves and allspice plus a touch of acacia honey. The palate is elegantly styled with all those intense scents marrying beautifully into a perfumed restraint, finishing with a lively citrus lift.
Decanter: 91
Enjoyable botrytis character with clementines, lemon confit and toasted almonds. A rich but silky texture, but it needs a turn of the throttle of acidity to really take things up a level. Nevertheless, this is a successful wine. Drinking Window 2022 - 2050.
Wine Enthusiast: 94
Dominated by Sémillon, this rich, luscious wine has layers of ripe fruit and intense concentration. Wood aging has sustained the richness of the wine and not overshadowed the ripe honey, candied peel and hints of almonds. The wine will age for many years. Drink from 2025. Editor's Choice.
James Suckling: 95
The nose has very pure fresh-peach and mango aromas with a light, orange-marmalade layer. The palate has a beautiful array of fresh toffee and sweet ripe-peach and peach-custard flavors. Great balance, length and definition here. Drink or hold.
