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 EnthusiastThis is a tough wine, but one with enough weight and fruit about it. It is dense and packed with potential of good things. Big fruits, big tannins and a dark structure all promise good aging with a serious, firm aftertaste. Drink from 2020.

Wine SpectatorSolid and direct, with a core of crushed plum and blackberry fruit lined with mesquite, tobacco and singed anise notes. Juicy acidity fuels the finish. Drink now through 2019.
