Château Haut-Bergey Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$69.99

I bought this wine for myself because I thought it was a sleeper of the vintage, and I couldn't be happier. My score in two tastings was identical to what it was seven years ago. Chocolatey espresso notes jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, with a silky texture, loads of concentration and density, this is a beautiful wine that is both hedonistically and intellectually pleasing. The wine seems to have reached full maturity, where it should stay for another 10-15 years. Robert Parker

One of the better values from the great 2000 vintage...Château Haut-Bergey from #PessacLeognan. Still drinking at its peak and showing its age in the best way. Black currant, cigar box, smoke, violets, and coffee. Lots of floral elements. Medium bodied and lots of finesse. Fine tannic structure. Good minerality on the medium length finish. An interesting wine from Pessac that at times seemed to masquerade as a wine from Margaux. There is enough depth of fruit and tannic structure for this to keep going for at least a few more years.

This was surprisingly great with the pernil. Don't think the winemaker intended to be paired with Cuban pork but it went so well together.

Big departure from the first two Bordeauxs but nice in its own right. Al lot more fruit in the nose and palate.

Drinking at its peak. Lots of tobacco with some mineral favors. A good value but not a wow wine. Enjoy with beef.

I suspect this wine had the best night of it's life. Excellent balance and structurally sound. Well integrated tannins mixed with black fruit and only a touch of oak.

Dark cherries, blackberries, black raspberries, menthol, eucalyptus, a little green pepper, pronounced dark earthiness, tobacco, dry stone, nice acid, very resolved tannins, smooth and elegant but the finish falls short.
