Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France
Wine Advocate 90 points!
Chateau Haut-Bergey is a true red wine gem! This beautiful older-vintage Bordeaux is one of the jewels in the collection of exquisite Grand Crus including Clos l'Eglise made by the acclaimed Garcin family. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, aged for 16 months in French oak barrels, 50% new.
"The Garcin family has done a fabulous job in Bordeaux with their other estates, such as Barde-Haut and Clos L’Eglise in Pomerol, as well as with the nearby luxury wine from Pessac Léognan – Branon. They produce this wine from gravelly and sandy soils, of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. Attractive, soft cassis and tobacco-leaf notes mixed with licorice and spice are present in this dense ruby/plum wine. It is medium-bodied with soft tannin and a relatively smooth, velvety texture, finish and opulence, giving this wine an up-front appeal, although it should age nicely for 12-15 years."--Robert M Parker, Jr, Wine Advocate, 90 points!
