Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Some say it’s the exceptional soils of clay and gravel washed down from the Pyrenees that give Bergey its charm. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits, spice, cedar and smoke. On the palate flavors of plum, blackberry and black raspberry with cacao, oaky tones and mineral spice. Lingering finish ending with fruit and toasty cedar character. Good value.

Can drink now but I think this has quite a few years left in it.

Dark ruby in color with a brick rim.

Fruity on the nose with cola, blackberries, figs, cherries, vanilla, cocoa, espresso and light black pepper.

Bone dry on the palate with cherries, red currants, vanilla, pencil lead, blackberries, blueberries, cloves, chocolate, licorice, Cola and light white pepper.

Full bodied and elegant with nice legs and medium acidity.

Medium finish with soft tannins, black pepper and cherries.

What a nice and enjoyable left bank Bordeaux. Nicely balanced, and needs time to open up properly. Good age for a while but it is drinking very well right now.

Aged in oak barrels for 18 months.

91 points Robert Parker.

One of the better values from the great 2000 vintage...Château Haut-Bergey from #PessacLeognan. Still drinking at its peak and showing its age in the best way. Black currant, cigar box, smoke, violets, and coffee. Lots of floral elements. Medium bodied and lots of finesse. Fine tannic structure. Good minerality on the medium length finish. An interesting wine from Pessac that at times seemed to masquerade as a wine from Margaux. There is enough depth of fruit and tannic structure for this to keep going for at least a few more years.
