    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.

    A wine with lovely dark berries and chocolates follows through to a full body with chewy tannins and a fit finish. Very in form. Best ever?

    James Suckling

    Good full, bright ruby-red. Inviting aromas of black raspberry, graphite, charcoal, tobacco and crushed stone. Lush and thick on entry, then densely packed and fine-grained, with excellent energy and definition to its concentrated, lightly medicinal flavors of black cherry, licorice and minerals. Boasts terrific volume for this bottling, and a long finish that features building, ripe tannins. There's excellent sweetness here but the wine's youthfully medicinal character argues for at least four or five years of patience.
