Description

Fully mature, with a smoke, coffee, vanilla, earth, tobacco and black cherry scented nose, the wine is soft, round and open for business. The only drawback is, the amount of oak, some tasters will not like that and the finish is a tad short. On the other hand, the texture and ripe fruit more than offset those other issues. This is probably drinking about as well as it's going to get, as it does not seem to have moved over the past few years. There is no hurry to drink it. It should remain at this level for at least another decade. Blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot as the young 2002) Good ruby-red. Complex nose melds minerals, game, mocha, animal fur and truffle. Sweet and broad in the mouth, with very ripe notes of game and animal fur. Very rich, velvety wine, even if it is currently showing more texture than flavor. Tannins are sweet and pliant, though, and the finish is silky and very long. 90 Points | International Wine Cellar, May/June 2003


Brilliant effort from proprietress Helene Garcin, the opaque ruby/purple-colored, medium-bodied Haut-Bergey reveals lots of smoky barbecue, forest floor, black currant and damp earth notes in a surprisingly dense, concentrated, positive, complete style. An outstanding mid-palate and length make for an impressive showing. 94 Points | Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
