Situated in the appellation of Pessac-Leognan, Chateau Haut-Bergey belongs to Sylviane Garcin. This Leognan estate has experienced a fantastic evolution over the past two decades thanks to the significant work carried out both in the vineyard, as well as in the vat room and the winery. Chateau Haut-Bergey today stands out for its powerful red wines and white wines typical of the Pessac-Leognan appellation.
The Chateau Haut-Bergey vineyard covers 70 hectares, out of which 42 hectares of vines are in production and planted in sandy-gravelly soils upon a clay subsoil. The vineyard is certified for organic and biodynamic viticulture, practicing grassing between the rows of vines, earthing and unearthing by foot. The vineyard and wines of Chateau Haut-Bergey are Ecocert and Demeter certified. The 2020 Chateau Haut-Bergey red comes from a 25 hectare vineyard.
Vinification and aging
The grapes, harvested manually, were subject to successive sorting. The vinification of the 2020 Chateau Haut-Bergey red was carried out in tapered stainless steel vats, favoring gentle extraction. Aging lasted 16 months in 3000-liter casks and 300-liter barrels.
