The vineyard of Chateau Haut-Bergey comprises 26.5 hectares of red grapes and 2 hectares of white grapes. Every effort is made to make the best wines possible. The red wine is hand-made and great care is given to the selection afterwards. The grapes are transported in small boxes of 20 kg in order to avoid them being squeezed or oxidation. The preparation of the wine is done in a traditional way: every parcel of vines is separately prepared in small vats of stainless steel or wood with integrated hot and cold regulation. The wine is aged in oak barrels for between 16 to 18 months according to the vintage. It is our foremost principle to produce a wine of excellent quality, sparing no efforts to improve our craftsmanship and expertise continuously.

Wine AdvocateThe Château Haut-Bergey 2014 is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot (though is pinch of Petit Verdot according Hélène Garçin-Léveque) raised in 30% new oak. It has a lot of ripeness on the nose, quite "full-on" in style and showing just a little sur-maturité. The palate is better, reining the opulence of the aromatics in with quite dense blackberry and raspberry fruit with commendable delineation on the finish. It just needs to contain that over-enthusiasm on the nose.

Wine SpectatorA solid, grippy-edged style, with a core of steeped plum and blackberry fruit laced with tar and roasted apple wood notes. Picks up needed energy on the finish. A bit brooding in feel, but there's ample depth of fruit and grip to wait this out. Best from 2019 through 2027. 12,500 cases made.
