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.
This bounces along pleasantly, with a briary hint along the edges and vivid damson plum, anise and blackberry notes at the core. A floral accent kicks in on the finish for added lift.
Showing spicy wood with firm, black-currant tannins and gentle fruit, this wine is rounded, soft and accessible.

Dark ruby. A whiff of oak blows off to reveal lovely purity of red fruit and floral aromas. Then fresh, clean and precise on the palate, with enticing sweetness to the pure red berry, mineral and vanilla flavors. The wine's smooth tannins and rising length left me wanting to drink more. A success for the vintage.
