Château Haut Bergey Rouge Grand Vin de Pessac Léognan 2011

Member Review by zufrieden:

This edition of Haut-Bergey is a very pleasant surprise:it has a mild nose of red currants, plum and blackberry that evokes parfum, while on the palate the soft tannin is already dissipating with elegant licks of plum and blackberry on a moderately long finish. Drinking nicely now, it might last another 4-5 years. But why wait? 90 points.
