Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey has a slight chlorine-like aroma in the glass, married with vanilla pod, dried honey and apricot scents that gather pace with time. The palate is harmonious and refined with good acidity, a little waxy in texture with hints of marzipan infusing the honeyed fruit. Yet it just seems to dip prematurely toward the finish and does not deliver the requisite complexity the aromatics deserve.
