Château Haut-Bergey Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"This estate is well-worth following given the fact that is always a realistic value and in most top vintages an over-achiever as well. Owned by the Garcin family, the 2010 Haut-Bergey (from a vineyard near Haut-Bailly) is composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot (unusual for this area). Possessing a deep ruby/purple hue as well as notes of creosote, charcoal, tobacco leaf, black currants and cherries, this sleeper of the vintage is opulent and luscious with a multilayered texture. Surprisingly forward with excellent freshness and depth, no hard edges, and a heady finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years."**Robert Parker Wine Advocate (92-94 pts.)***We will notify you on arrival summer 2013*

60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot planted over 40 hectares in gravelly clay subsoil. Aged 18 months in 50% new oak. Dark inky ruby this has a rich powerfulbouquet of crushed rocks wet stone red fruit and damp earth - almost Rhone-esquein profile! Ripe and velvety on the palate and although very tannic it stays in balance. A terrific wine to lay down for a couple of years this will be great for a decade-plus.

Offers 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. -JM Wine Spectator.

Seriously ripe, with dense, succulent plum and black currant fruit paste notes, laced with extra spice, anise and tar. This has great drive and cut, and is still a bit compact. Seems set for the longer haul. A seriously good showing for this estate. ... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Haut Bergey 1500ml
