Château-Haut-Bergey Pessac Leognan 2010


SKU 09490


The vineyard of CHATEAU HAUT-BERGEY comprises 26.5 hectares of red grapes and 2 hectares of white grapes. Every effort is made to make the best wines possible. The red wine is hand-made and great care is given to the selection afterwards. The grapes are transported in small boxes of 20 kg in order to avoid them being squeezed or oxidation. The preparation of the wine is done in a traditional way: every parcel of vines is separately prepared in small vats of stainless steel or wood with integrated hot and cold regulation. The wine is aged in oak barrels for between 16 to 18 months according to the vintage. It is our foremost principle to produce a wine of excellent quality, sparing no efforts to improve our craftsmanship and expertise continuously.

Wine SpectatorOffers lush fruit, with dark raspberry and boysenberry notes, good, graphite-laced structure and bright acidity weaving throughout. The long, smoldering finish features an appealing licorice snap and violet profile. Best from 2015 through 2025.

Wine AdvocateFrom Helene Garcin, this blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot displays classic tobacco leaf and smoky barbecue notes along with rich black currants and crushed rocks in a medium to full-bodied, seductive, attractively up-front style. Some Asian plum sauce is also noticeable in this complex, evolved and delicious wine, which can be drunk over the next 10-15 years. It is a sleeper of the vintage.
