A firm and chewy red with blackberry, currant and light walnut character. Full body and a structured finish.

The red is also outstanding. Notes of blackcurrants, smoked earth, wet stone, and chocolate all emerge from the 2016 Château Haut-Bergey. Medium-bodied, beautifully textured, and layered on the palate, it has ripe tannins and the hallmark purity of fruit that makes 2016 so special. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years.

Jane Anson - Decanter

This estate, owned by Paul Garcin, has produced a successful red in 2016 with a lovely sense of restrained power and a fresh delivery with well-paced, well-rounded tannins. It is not as juicy as some in this vintage, but it has presence and good persistency, and is expertly handled.This has all five of the main Bordeaux varieties: Merlot, both Cabs, Malbec and Petit Verdot from clay and gravel soils, aged in 33% new oak over 16 months.

Expert Review
James Molesworth - Wine Spectator

This has a fleshy plum and cassis-laden core, laced with singed tobacco leaf and dark earth notes and backed by a tug of cedar detail on the finish. A touch chewy in the end; for fans of the gutsy style. Best from 2022 through 2030. 5,667 cases made.  –JM

Nez délicatement fruité et épicé, bouche ronde et charnue en attaque, bien fruitée, structurée, avec des tannins que l’élevage harmonisera et une bonne allonge.

Antonio Galloni MW - Vinous

The 2016 Haut-Bergey is powerful and a bit rough around the edges, but pleasantly rustic in its own way. Leather, tobacco, cedar and game power through in this deep, flavorful Pessac-Léognan.

Expert Review
Neal Martin - Wine Advocate

The 2016 Haut Bergey has a superior bouquet compared to the previous two vintages that left this writer a bit perplexed. There is greater purity and harmony here: marine-tinged black fruit with just a hint of cassis developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin on the entry, good depth with a slightly "fishy" note in the background. It loses its ways a little towards the finish where I am seeking more structure and detail. Let's see how this performs once in bottle.

Expert Review
Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider

Smoky, earthy, dark, red fruits, polished, forward and in a crowd pleasing, upfront, medium bodied style. There is nice plush textures, but not a lot of complexity.
