Château Haut-Bergey, Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan 2005
"One of the finest under-the-radar estates in Pessac-Leognan, Haut-Bergeys 2005 (a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot) offers up aromas of scorched earth, wet stones, burning embers, charcoal, and copious black currant and cherry fruit. The sumptuous bouquet is accompanied by a full-bodied wine displaying dazzling purity, sweet tannin, and a long, opulent finish. This beauty will be drinkable at a relatively early age for a 2005. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025."

"Notably deep ruby in colour, as with all great 2005s this is still full of fruit and tannin but it is definitely hitting its drinking window. Still fairly subtle on the aromatics at first, but it opens up and draws you in, and has the lifting juicy salinity that is conferred by the Cabernet Franc. Here you get a rich round quality to the fruit that has been less evident in the older wines, completed by the chocolate liquorice slice of Pomerol. Subtle, balanced and will age. Drinking Window 2020 - 2034"
