    Winemaker's Notes:

    Chateau Haut Bergey is one of the crown jewels in the collection of exquisite Grand Crus. The exceptional soil consists of clay and gravel washed up from the Pyrenees caused by the meanderings of the Garrone over time which give Chateau Haut Bergey its distinctive character.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A blend of just over 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Merlot (last year I mistakenly wrote that the balance was Cabernet Franc), the opaque ruby/purple-colored 2009 reveals notes of scorched earth/burning embers/charcoal, black currants, ripe cherries and lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied and pure with sweet tannin, this is an under-the-radar, high quality claret to drink over the next 20-25 years.

    Pretty nose of blackberry and mineral that follows through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Juicy and rich. Very well done. —J.S.

    (a 60/40 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot from vines averaging 40 years of age) Inky purple. Perfectly ripe but rather understated black plum and blackcurrant are complicated by floral notes of rose, gardenia and violet as well as a hint of tartar sauce. Easygoing and smooth on entry, with flamboyant ripe black fruit and Oriental spice flavors that come as a surprise following the nose. Finishes clean and long, with considerable tannic bite and a pleasant lingering flinty mineral note. This will need time to resolve its youthfully aggressive-but not drying-tannins. Terrific potential.
