2006 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

SKU #1046728 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Consistently one of the top, under-the-radar wines of Pessac-Leognan, Haut-Bergey's beautiful 2006 boasts a deep ruby/purple hue as well as a classic bouquet of hot rocks intermixed with graphite, cassis, incense, and charcoal. Medium to full-bodied with noticeable but sweet tannin, impressive purity, and an alluring texture, it is relatively evolved for a 2006, so consumption over the next 15 years is recommended. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2009)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright, deep ruby-red. Wild, musky aromas of plum, dark cherry, truffle and game, lifted by menthol and licorice. Supple and sweet, offering pure, nicely delineated red fruit flavors and considerable early appeal. A lively, firm midweight, finishing with solid, dusty tannins and very good lift and length. Tasted next to the Branon, also from the Garcin family and consulting winemaker Alain Raynaud, this was less exotic and lush but perhaps more classic and vibrant. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2009)

We have been very lucky to receive "older" bottlings of Haut-Bergey from the estate. Though Pessac reds generally have gravel and earth notes, which this one does, the 2006 vintage of the Haut-Bergey balances that with soft tannins, black cherry and black currant fruits. At once, smooth and silky but, with a lingering finish of minerals and just a tiny bit of chalk. Delish!

This wine must be one of our best bargain at the store right now. If not THE best one! Perfectly aged, and ready to be enjoyed, but far, far from being over its peak. The sweet fruit on the palate is the icing on the cake of a wine layered with exquisite classic aged Claret notes. Aromatic cedar, leather and smoke, olives and earth. This bottle would transform the most mundane of meals in a feast fit for a king. I really liked this one.

Recently, I was wandering aimlessly up and down our store aisles, needing inspiration for my grilled rib eye dinner. I asked Jacques, our resident Bordeaux expert, what I should drink. He put this wine in my hands. I'm so glad he did. The fruit is sumptuous, showing plum, dried cherry and black currants. The mouthfeel is luscious, the tannins gentle. Classic notes of coffee, tobacco, cedar, and cassis are present here too. I savored every aroma and flavor and was sad when the decanter was empty. This is a sublime wine that has a lot of life left to give. Drink now with a good decant, or cellar for years to come.

Yet another amazing Bordeaux bargain from legendary winemaker Helen Garcin Leveque (of Clos l’Eglise & Barde Haut fame). Beautiful cherry/red currant fruit with graphite, smoke, leather and tobacco. Limited Stock!

This 10+ year old wine represents fantastic value with its sweet fruit profile, earthy aromas and gravely finish. Big but well rounded flavors of plum, dark currant and cherry are layered against a finish of firm, ripe tannin and mineral. There is a lot going on in this under the radar bottle.
