A top-notch effort from proprietress Helene Garcin, Haut-Bergey’s 2004 exhibits an evolved, cedary, smoky, tobacco, and sweet cherry-scented bouquet offered in a medium-bodied, supple-textured style. It is not as big or forceful as the 2005 nor as structured as the 2006, but rather it is evolved, seductive, and ideal for drinking over the next 7-8 years. - Robert Parker

The ’04 Haut Bergey carries a nose laden with black and blue fruit with tinges of leather, grilled meat, smoke and herbs. The dark fruit on the palate picks up an earthy edge while the finish leaves lingering notes of forest floor, tobacco and a slight mineral streak. With tannin fully integrated and fruit set in the secondary, this pleasantly aged Pessac is in great form. Drink now.

Haut-Bergey is medium-bodied and ages well for 8-15 years, depending on the vintage.

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.
