Chateau Haut Bergey Pessac Leognan 2006
BOOM! Friday! Drink Bordeaux! And drink it with 12 years of age (perfect), direct from the Chateau, with a Wine Advocate 91 POINTS, at a brain-melting nearly 60% OFF!! Madness!
THIS is why we got to Bordeaux at least once or twice a year. We DIG UP stellar, amazing parcels like this at wicked pricing. God we love this job!! Wow! OK -- so, what were you doing in the 15th century?? Nothing? Well, Chateau Haut Bergey was making wine in the world-class Pessac-Leognan appellation of Bordeaux, so they’ve got a bit of experience. Fast-forward to 2006, a fine, long-lived vintage that is juuuuust coming around to drinking perfection. Fast-forward again to Jan. 3rd, 2019 when a bigazz truck dropped off a few pallets of it in our warehouse, that sent us into a tizzy, practically drooling to offer it to you TODAY! Yes! You saw that price, right???
“Consistently one of the top, under-the-radar wines of Pessac-Leognan... impressive purity, and an alluring texture...Supple and sweet, offering pure, nicely delineated red fruit flavors…”
Just a few of the nice things being said about this wine. At this age, it has all come together in a harmonious, complex and layered Cabernet-based beauty, with masculine structure that unfolds in your glass, opening up more layers --- starts out with plummy, dried cherry, then hits you with some smoky coffee beans, cocoa, and woodsmoke, with good freshness and length.
Again -- we gotta say --- a Pessac wine, with this age, track record, pedigree and perfect storage condition (at the winery), priced like we have it, is a RARE, rare beast indeed. Move as quickly as your hot little fingers will move...not a lot! Happy Friday!
