Winemaker 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

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

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.

JS 93
James Suckling

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?

ST 92
International Wine Cellar

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.

Chateau Haut-Bergey, , France - Bordeaux
Chateau Haut-Bergey
In the fifteenth century, the lord of La Louviere and Lord Olivier proceeded to land consolidation. Thus was born "The Noble House of Pontey, today Château Haut-Bergey. In 1700, Sir John Francis Cresse, advisor to the parliament of Bordeaux makes his home. In 1772, the estate had 100 hectares of vines. A century later, the vineyard was abandoned and rebuilt the castle in 1850 is a property approval. It was not until the second half of this century, 1957 specifically so that gradually the area regains its past wine. In March 1991, Sylviane Garcin Cathiard acquired Château Haut-Bergey.

The 28.5 hectares of land are located in the heart of the village of Léognan, mecca of Graves.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
