2008 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

SKU #1183553 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast

 A wine that offers all the right characters. The fruit has a lively, vivid juiciness, with sweet berry fruits. The tannins have just a touch of toast, but essentially come from the dense fruit. (RV)  (4/2009)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Another sleeper of the vintage, the relatively evolved, elegant, complex 2008 Haut-Bergey offers up notes of smoked tobacco, cassis, cherries, licorice, Asian plum sauce and spice box. With abundant fruit, an opulent texture and an elegant style, this pretty, medium-bodied, richly fruity wine should drink well for 12-14 years. (RP)  (5/2011)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright ruby-red. Wild, smoky aromas of redcurrant, plum, meat and leather. Concentrated, saline and serious, with a slightly rustic quality to the plum and leather flavors. A firm but fine coating of tannins give this seamless wine good spine. (ST)  (8/2011)
