|Wine Style:||Dry Red, Medium to Full-Bodied|
Rating: Robert Parker 91
Consistently one of the top, under-the-radar wines of Pessac-Leognan, Haut-Bergey’s beautiful 2006 boasts a deep ruby/purple hue as well as a classic bouquet of hot rocks intermixed with graphite, cassis, incense, and charcoal. Medium to full-bodied with noticeable but sweet tannin, impressive purity, and an alluring texture, it is relatively evolved for a 2006, so consumption over the next 15 years is recommended.
Château Haut Bergey dates back to the 15th century and was acquired by Sylviane Garcin-Cathaird in the early 1990’s. The estate has been extensively renovated and the construction of three new chais were carried out to rehabilitate the domain.
The 29 hectares of Haut Bergey are not all in production, 21 hectares are planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignonand 35% Merlot while 3 hectares are planted with 65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Semillon. Grapes are harvested by hand, while the wine-making and ageing processes are carefully controlled by an on-site analysis laboratory.
