Description

92-94  Wine Enthusiast
“This is a spicy, full-bodied wine with firm tannins. Plenty of acidity provides freshness, while there is still enough structure to allow it to age well.” (4/2019)

93  Decanter
“This wine is consistent and usually good value too. It’s deep in colour as it has Merlot, both Cabs, Petit Verdot and Malbec in the mix, and it has lovely juiciness and balance. The palate is intense and powerful but mouthwatering. Blackberry and raspberry fruits abound, and the tannins are just tough enough to give structure but soft enough to let the light in. It’s aged in 300l oak barrels, plus some stainless steel and egg-shaped concrete vats. Certified organic and biodynamic from this vintage (or rather, certification will arrive at the end of the year, so from the 2019 vintage, but also fully practised for 2018). They made no wine in 2017 so I’m happy to see it do so well this year. Owned by the Garcin family. Drinking Window 2024 – 2040.”  Jane Anson (4/2019)

91-92  James Suckling
“A linear and fine-grained red with lovely tannins and blackberry and blueberry character. Medium body. Chewy finish. From biodynamically farmed grapes.” (4/2019)

90-92  Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Haut Bergey reveals pronounced notes of crème de cassis, stewed plums and baked blackberries with hints of spice cake, mincemeat pie and bay leaves. Full-bodied, firm and chewy in the mouth, the palate delivers a great concentration of berry preserves layers, finishing savory.
