This has good depth and polish with pure ripe blackberry and black currant fruit laced with roasted tobacco leaf bay and iron notes. Shows solid grip through the finish.-J.M.

Aged for 15-18 months in 50% new oak barrels. Sylvain Garcin Cathiard has owned Haut-Bergey since 1991 and has really elevated the quality giving it the same treatment used at the family's other chateaux. Very chocolaty and rich on the nose and the palate this has a nice soft entry with baking spice flavor in the mid-palate providing some complexity to accompany black cherry flavors. Fine tannins give this admirable length. Tasted twice. Enjoy 2014-2020.

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.
