CHATEAU HAUT BERGEY 2007
The origins of Château Haut-Bergey date back to the 15th century when the estate was known as La Maison Noble de Pontey. Since 1991, the estate has been owned by Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard who embarked on a major renovation and restoration of the estate, introducing state-of-the-art winemaking facilities in 2001. Today, Haut Bergey is managed by Helene Garcin Levesque, who has established the estate as one of the best value producers in Bordeaux.
The 28.5 hectare vineyards of Chateau Haut-Bergey are situated in middle of the small village of Leognan on classic Pessac gravel-based soils. For the red wines, 37 hectares are planted to 54% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Merlot with vines that are on average 35 years of age. Vinification takes place in temperature controlled, stainless steel vats that range in size from 80 hectoliters to 120 hectoliters and is aged in about 50% new French oak barrels for between 16 and 18 months.
