92 points "A big time sleeper of the vintage, Clos Haut Peyraguey’s 2001 exhibits abundant amounts of Grand Marnier-like orange flavors intermixed with creme brulee, melted caramels, and hints of pineapples and apricots. Full-bodied, sweet, long, and well-defined, it should drink well for 15+ years." Best 2005-2020

97 points "Highly Recommended designation: 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." Best 2010-

4.5 stars "Voici une magnifique bouteille d'un classicisme total, avec des arômes sur l'ananas. Son corps magnifique souligne la proximité du cru avec Yquem. Une bouteille d'anthologie dans trente ans!" Best 2010-2040
