    We have been very lucky to receive "older" bottlings of Haut-Bergey from the estate. Though Pessac reds generally have gravel and earth notes, which this one does, the 2006 vintage of the Haut-Bergey balances that with soft tannins, black cherry and black currant fruits. At once, smooth and silky but, with a lingering finish of minerals and just a tiny bit of chalk. Delish!

    This wine must be one of our best bargain at the store right now. If not THE best one! Perfectly aged, and ready to be enjoyed, but far, far from being over its peak. The sweet fruit on the palate is the icing on the cake of a wine layered with exquisite classic aged Claret notes. Aromatic cedar, leather and smoke, olives and earth. This bottle would transform the most mundane of meals in a feast fit for a king. I really liked this one.

    Recently, I was wandering aimlessly up and down our store aisles, needing inspiration for my grilled rib eye dinner. I asked Jacques, our resident Bordeaux expert, what I should drink. He put this wine in my hands. I'm so glad he did. The fruit is sumptuous, showing plum, dried cherry and black currants. The mouthfeel is luscious, the tannins gentle. Classic notes of coffee, tobacco, cedar, and cassis are present here too. I savored every aroma and flavor and was sad when the decanter was empty. This is a sublime wine that has a lot of life left to give. Drink now with a good decant, or cellar for years to come.

    Yet another amazing Bordeaux bargain from legendary winemaker Helen Garcin Leveque (of Clos l’Eglise & Barde Haut fame). Beautiful cherry/red currant fruit with graphite, smoke, leather and tobacco. Limited Stock!

    This 10+ year old wine represents fantastic value with its sweet fruit profile, earthy aromas and gravely finish. Big but well rounded flavors of plum, dark currant and cherry are layered against a finish of firm, ripe tannin and mineral. There is a lot going on in this under the radar bottle.
