Description

Haut Bergey has an interesting and chequered history. First records of wine-making at this estate date back to the 15th century. By the end of the 18th century the domaine boasted some 100 hectares under vine. In the mid 19th century the magnificent chateau was constructed, but wine production had ceased. It wasn’t until the mid 20th century that wine production started again. The present owner Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard, purchased the estate in 1991 and has transformed its fortunes. The 28.5 hectares of vines are based in Leognan on excellent gravelly, pebbly soils deposited by the Garonne at the end of the Tertiary era. Most of the vineyards are devoted to the production of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, however, the estate also has 2 hectares devoted to Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.

Wine tasting notes

Shows good depth and richness on the nose, with plenty of blackcurrant and berries coming through on the palate. Concentrated, with a good structure and firm tannins, this is a very good wine.
