Haut Bergey Pessac-Leognan 2006
Consistently one of the top, under-the-radar wines of Pessac-Leognan, Haut-Bergey’s beautiful 2006 boasts a deep ruby/purple hue as well as a classic bouquet of hot rocks intermixed with graphite, cassis, incense, and charcoal. Medium to full-bodied with noticeable but sweet tannin, impressive purity, and an alluring texture.91 pointsRobert Parker Wine Advocate
An appealing lemon-oil color in the glass with excellent body and viscosity (possibly a bit fat) judging by the legs forming on the sides of the glass. Typical grass, citrus and meadow herb on the nose - though slow to open. A liberal showing of Semillion characteristics - weeds, freshly mown lawn and peach cordial. A few sharper flavors of citrus which bespeak of Sauvignon Blanc in the blend. A most satisfying wine of medium finish which could benefit from 2-3 more years of cellaring at below 12 degrees Celsius. Recommended.
The 2006 Haut-Bergey is a suave wine of great purity with typical cassis, Virginia cigarette ash and lead pencil on mid-palate. Gorgeous blood-red color with excellent glycerol-like viscosity. Very approachable with soft tannins although capable of several years of prudent cellaring. The wine may open up a bit in 2-3 years. You might consider buying a case of this one.

and cherries. Flavorful and savory with excellent to outstanding concentration
This is a strong vintage for Bordeaux�s dry white wines, probably as good or better than 2005. Crisp acidity combined with outstanding concentration and the fact that most of the white grapes were harvested before the rains began in mid-September resulted in an impressive group of wines.
