Owned by the Garcin family, the 2010 Haut-Bergey (from a vineyard near Haut-Bailly) is composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot (unusual for this area). Possessing a deep ruby/purple hue as well as notes of creosote, charcoal, tobacco leaf, black currants and cherries, this sleeper of the vintage is opulent and luscious with a multilayered texture. Surprisingly forward with excellent freshness and depth, no hard edges, and a heady finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years.

A blend of 65% and 70% Merlot, the Haut-Bergey 2010 has a very attractive bouquet, very pure with blackberry sorbet, raspberry and wild strawberry. Good definition. The palate is full-bodied with a svelte, silky smooth texture, good acidity, very harmonious with admirable purity. Caressing on the finish. I think that this has great potential.

This is a wine that shows lots of chocolate, tobacco and currants. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. All there.

Seriously ripe, with dense, succulent plum and black currant fruit paste notes, laced with extra spice, anise and tar. This has great drive and cut, and is still a bit compact. Seems set for the longer haul. A seriously... Seriously ripe, with dense, succulent plum and black currant fruit paste notes, laced with extra spice, anise and tar. This has great drive and cut, and is still a bit compact. Seems set for the longer haul. A seriously good showing for this estate. -J.M.

Blending 65% Cabernet Sauvignon with 35% Merlot produced a wine filled with licorice, smoke, oak and cassis. This suave, round, soft textured wine ends with earthy, blackberry and coffee.

Planted on over 40 hectares in gravelly clay subsoil. Sylvain Garcin Cathiard has owned Haut-Bergey since 1991, and has really lifted the quality of this wine, giving it the same treatment as their other great chateaux in their outstanding portfolio. The 2010 is a massive wine with a rich nose of crushed rock, wet stone, spice and dark fruits. A ripe and velvety mouth feel leads to powerful and structured mid palate. Its medium length finish reveals a good level of fine yet grippy tannins. The power does not overwhelm the wine - it is still in balance. A terrific wine to lay down for a few years and enjoy over the following 15+ years. Wow. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
