Continuing on the value Bordeaux theme, I present to you a classic, rustic, earthy red from the Pessac Leognan region. This 2006 Haut Bergey is drinking beautifully at the moment but still has the legs to last another 5years at least. The blend is dominant with about 70 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 30 percent Merlot.The sugary tannins have nice candy undertones which flow off of your tongue and think ripe juicy plums in color and taste. It is not a massive wine sitting at a lower than average 13 percent alcohol which is a nice change from the current trends in Bordeaux. Haut Bergey is widely available and retails for about 20 to 25 gbp a bottle depending on the vintage.. The latest 2012 vintage was recently released en premier at a very affordable 145 gbp per case of 12 bottles in bond and is definitely worth buying. This wine is a step up from the wine from entre dex meurs in my previous review (2008 Courteillac) but still very affordable for the quality.
