Chateau Haut Bergey 2010 revisited
Like 2005 and 2009, 2010 has a dark hue and a matt, tight, black-tinged, opaque core. The first nose offers plenty of ripe dark fruit; the second has gamey nuances. It is fresher than the 2009 and the 2005. Again, if you are looking for power, this differs. If
you are looking for fresh and natural fruit tones as well As Pessac Leognan 's classic elements offering aromas of espresso, tobacco, black raspberry, smoke and autumn leaves, this is the wine for you. The smooth, soft textures, forward personality and fresh, ripe berries make this already pleasurable to drink, and with some bottle age, it will get even better. And if you are particularly looking for a substance that helps to enhance the seam of appealingly ripe and sinewy tannins, this is the guy. Persistent and fleeting, the palate soothes with delicate flesh at first, although it is a bit less fat than expected, pleasingly textured throughout the tasting—some mileage. DD94.
The scores are good.
WE93. Fresh, citrus and spicy pear flavours, a wine laced with acidity, a crisp texture and an elegant bright aftertaste. Edited.
JS93. This is a wine that shows lots of chocolate, tobacco and currants. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. All there. Edited.
RP92.From Helene Garcin, this blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot displays classic tobacco leaf and smoky barbecue notes, rich black currants, and crushed rocks in a medium to full-bodied, seductive, attractively up-front style. It is a sleeper of the vintage. (RP) Edited.
