Chateau Haut Bergey Pessac Léognan 2006 Bordeaux, France

image

My Rating 87 Points. 
Price $40.

Dark ruby in color with a brick rim.

Fruity on the nose with cola, blackberries, figs, cherries, vanilla, cocoa, espresso and light black pepper.

Bone dry on the palate with cherries, red currants, vanilla, pencil lead, blackberries, blueberries, cloves, chocolate, licorice, Cola and light white pepper.

Full bodied and elegant with nice legs and medium acidity.

Medium finish with soft tannins, black pepper and cherries.

What a nice and enjoyable left bank Bordeaux. Nicely balanced, and needs time to open up properly. Good age for a while but it is drinking very well right now.

Aged in oak barrels for 18 months.

91 points Robert Parker.
