Bordeaux - Château HAUT BERGEY, Cru Classé. Pessac-Léognan

2000 Château HAUT BERGEY, Cru Classé. Pessac-Léognan, Bordeaux

Bin: 777
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Pessac-Léognan is a sub-region of Graves, the famous area just south of the town of Bordeaux itself
Grape Variety: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, aged for 14 months in oak (40% new)
Producer: Dating back to the 14th century, Haut Bergey was an under-achiever until bought by Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard in 1991. Her daughter Helene now runs the estate wtih husband Patrice Leveque, along with Clos L'Eglise (Pomerol, just 6 hectares), Branon (Pessac-Léognan), Barde-Haut (Saint Emilion Grand Cru), and, last but not least, Poesia, in Mendoza, Argentina
Vintage: 2000 A great year by any standards
Old Bridge Rating: Remarkable ripeness - and perfectly mature for drinking over the next 3 or 4 years
Press Reviews: "‘I bought this wine for myself because I thought it was a sleeper of the vintage, and I couldn’t be happier. My score in two tastings was identical to what it was seven years ago. Chocolatey espresso notes jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, with a silky texture, loads of concentration and density, this is a beautiful wine that is both hedonistically and intellectually pleasing. The wine seems to have reached full maturity, where it should stay for another 10-15 years. 94/100’." – Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, June 2010
