Reviews for 2008 Haut Bergey Bordeaux Blend

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, December 2009
Barrel sample. A wine that offers all the right characters. The fruit has a lively vivid juiciness with sweet berry fruits. The tannins have just a touch of toast but essentially come from the dense fruit. R.V.

Another sleeper of the vintage the relatively evolved elegant complex 2008 Haut-Bergey offers up notes of smoked tobacco cassis cherries licorice Asian plum sauce and spice box. With abundant fruit an opulent texture and an elegant style this pretty medium-bodied richly fruity wine should drink well for 12-14 years.

Deep ruby bordering on purple at the core. The nose is quite complex and seductive with notes of boysenberry raspberry fresh roasted coffee and granite.

The nose is quite complex and seductive with notes of boysenberry raspberry fresh roasted coffee and granite. On the palate it's smooth and refined with soft powdery tannins. This is a pleasant modern styled Bordeaux blend that even at this very young age shows a lot of potential. Start drinking in 2-3 years and cellar for 10-12.

From vines with an average age of 35 years. Way more "Bordeaux" than the 2008 and 2009 starting to show some bottle bouquet with delicate aromas of wet earth mushroom and fresh herbs. Very balanced with terrific acid and refreshing fresh fruit.
