My score in two tastings was identical to what it was seven years ago. Chocolatey espresso notes jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, with a silky texture, loads of concentration and density, this is a beautiful wine that is both hedonistically and intellectually pleasing. The wine seems to have reached full maturity, where it should stay for another 10-15 years. - Robert Parker

Complex nose melds minerals, game, mocha, animal fur and truffle. Sweet and broad in the mouth, with very ripe notes of game and animal fur. Very rich, velvety wine, even if it is currently showing more texture than flavor. Tannins are sweet and pliant, though, and the finish is silky and very long.

The nose is initially quite shy but with a bit of air this opens incredibly. There is a supremely complex array of red and black fruits, wet asphalt, black truffle, saddle leather, cedar and forest floor. I love the nose and can’t stop smelling the alluring aromas present. On the palate, this is silky and vibrant with a well-integrated tannic profile and core of acidity which keep this gem fresh and youthful. There is more red fruit present on the palate: red cherry, raspberry, strawberry and plum. This coats the palate but is not heavy or cloying, this finish is long and persistent. This is in a great spot today and should age effortlessly for another 10-15 years.

Winery

Haut Bergey

It was love at first sight and the promising charm of Chateau Haut-Bergey that led Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard, granddaughter of a wine merchant and a successful business woman, to acquire and renovate this 28.5-hectare property in the heart of Leognan, a leading area of the Graves region. The estate’s foremost principle is to produce a wine of excellent quality, sparing no efforts to continuously improve craftsmanship and expertise.

The vineyard of comprises 26.5 hectares of red grapes and 2 hectares of white grapes. It is well exposed to the south and south-west on slightly sloping grounds, ensuring natural drainage. During summertime and especially in September, the gravel topsoil reflects absorbed heat onto the bunches of grapes, thus improving the process of ripening. The subsoil, which influences the deep-rooted vines, is composed of clay and chalk streaked with iron-bearing parts.
