Impressive full ruby. Black cherry and licorice on the ripe but rather high-pitched nose. The palate shows very good stuffing but a slight youthful rigidity to the fruit-driven flavors of blackberry and black cherry. Not... Impressive full ruby. Black cherry and licorice on the ripe but rather high-pitched nose. The palate shows very good stuffing but a slight youthful rigidity to the fruit-driven flavors of blackberry and black cherry. Not yet displaying its personality (it's still a bit clenched today) but the wine's ripeness and sappy finish leave me optimistic that this will come with elevage.

40 Ha Yield. Assemblage: 70% Cabernet 30% Merlot. Dark inky purple with fuchsia rim - Full Intensity. Definitely a stand out! Perfume with black cherry and black berry with extra note of blueberry concentration... 40 Ha Yield. Assemblage: 70% Cabernet 30% Merlot. Dark inky purple with fuchsia rim - Full Intensity. Definitely a stand out! Perfume with black cherry and black berry with extra note of blueberry concentration. Blackberry attack building to a powerful mid-palate grows to a crescendo for a 30 second finish.

Label

Grapes for Haut-Bergey's red are hand picked and transported in small boxes. The winemaking is traditional, with every parcel vinified separately in stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged in 50% new French oak barrels for 16 to 18 months. The blend ranges from 54% to 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, the rest being Merlot. 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.
