Many experts consider Chateau Haut Bergeron to be the best of the non classified Sauternes. Part of the secret of the success of Robert Lamothes and his sons Patrick and Herue is the terroir. The 28 hectare vineyard is split on such a way, that part of the wines are in Barsac, (next to Chateau Climens), part are at Preignac and a large slice next to Chateau d’Yquem. At one stage the label used to boast this fact, with the words "CONTIGU d’YQUEM". Son, Herue is a dedicated and passionate winemaker who ages wine in 25% to 50% new oak casks. The exact percentage depends upon the vintage conditions. The wine is classic Sauternes, which display great harmony and balance, with flavours of exotic fruits, mangoes and peaches, followed by good acid finish.
Tasting Notes: Magnificent deep golden colour. Initially the nose is restrained, however, after a swirl of the glass, notes of apricot, honey and spice emerge. Totally mouthfilling palate, rich luscious texture – an essay in honey, spice and raisins. Outstanding length and persistence, followed by very long honey, raisin aftertaste. Cellar 8-10 years.
