2009 Chateau Haut Bergey Rouge Pessac-Leognan (12 x Bottle)

France Bordeaux Pessac-Leognan

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.

Vinous

Good full, bright ruby-red. Sexy, slightly exotic aromas of black raspberry, graphite, charcoal, tobacco and stone. Lush and thick on entry, then densely packed and fine-grained in the middle, with excellent definition and cut to its concentrated flavors of medicinal black cherry and licorice. Really superb volume here. Finishes with compelling sweetness and early appeal for a young Bordeaux.

Vinous

The 2009 Haut-Bergey has a lovely bouquet with raspberry, cranberry, rose petal and light forest floor aromas, opening beautifully in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well judged acidity, and smooth in texture although, it lacks some density and grip on the finish. Enjoy now and over the next 6 to 8 years. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting.
