This estate produced two beautiful wines in the vintage. The medium-gold colored 2016 Château Haut-Bergey Blanc is an outstanding white from the Graves region that offers a honeyed, melon, pineapple, and floral array to go with a medium-bodied, ripe, rounded style on the palate. I don’t think it’s going to make old bones, but it’s undeniably delicious.

Rich and oily with dried-lemon, pear and apple character. Full body. Savory, salty finish.

The 2016 Haut-Bergey Blanc offers notable richness and plenty of up-front appeal. Pineapple, mango and a host of exotic floral notes give this suave, layered white its distinctive personality. Drink it over the next few years.

Nez délicatement fruité et minéral, notes de menthol et de pain d’épices, bouche chaleureuse et grasse, fondante, avec du fruit et une bonne vivacité en finale.

Has a ripe and rounded feel, with a mix of melon, lime curd, pear and blanched almond notes. Has good spine, and should pull together while remaining in an open-knit, flattering style.—J.M.

Neal Martin - Vinous
The 2016 Haut-Bergey Blanc has a showy and rather monotone nose featuring peach, apricot and mango notes, bizarrely akin to a Chardonnay. The palate is rounded on the entry. Quite a “worked” phenolic dry white Bordeaux, showing tropical tones and a sense of fatness toward the finish. It feels a little uncouth compared to its peers. Not bad, just rather anonymous. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

Neal Martin - Wine Advocate
The Haut Bergey 2016 Blanc was lacking much in the way of complexity on the nose whilst the palate felt slightly honeyed on the entry and lacked real acidity towards the finish. Early drinking only.

Now biodynamic.  Tasted blind. Deep honeyed gold. Heavy and sweet with a heavy, foot-dragging nose. Too ripe and not enough freshness. Drink 2018-2021   15/20
