A blend of just over 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Merlot (last year I mistakenly wrote that the balance was Cabernet Franc), the opaque ruby/purple-colored 2009 reveals notes of scorched earth/burning embers/charcoal, black currants, ripe cherries and lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied and pure with sweet tannin, this is an under-the-radar, high quality claret to drink over the next 20-25 years.||As powerful and rich as the 2000 and 2010, Haut-Bergey’s 2009 is another of the over-achieving, value-priced Bordeaux that are increasingly difficult to find. The estate, which is owned by Helene Garcin (who also owns Clos l’Eglise and Barde-Haut, and makes the cult wine, Branon, from a vineyard adjacent to Haut-Bergey), is situated near Malartic Lagraviere and Domaine de Chevalier.

Tasted at Clos l’Eglise. This has a rather pinched nose, blackberry, oyster shell, briary and crushed stones. very fresh and delineated, not powerful, but opening nicely with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied, grainy tannins, quite meaty and grainy, some savoury notes towards the finish. Understated, approachable, nice sous-bois elements on the finish. Fine. Tasted April 2010

Pretty nose of blackberry and mineral that follows through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Juicy and rich. Very well done

Very ripe. Sweet and round with a little fragrance. Pretty drying on the finish. A bit too much like hard work?

Black red, concentrated tobacco leaf cassis fruit, good concentration and vigour, has a greenness that needs to soften. Drink 2014-20
