"Seriously ripe, with dense, succulent plum and black currant fruit paste notes, laced with extra spice, anise and tar. This has great drive and cut, and is still a bit compact. Seems set for the longer haul. A seriously good showing for this estate." (WS)

"This estate is well-worth following given the fact that is always a realistic value and in most top vintages an over-achiever as well. Owned by the Garcin family, the 2010 Haut-Bergey (from a vineyard near Haut-Bailly) is composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot (unusual for this area). Possessing a deep ruby/purple hue as well as notes of creosote, charcoal, tobacco leaf, black currants and cherries, this sleeper of the vintage is opulent and luscious with a multilayered texture. Surprisingly forward with excellent freshness and depth, no hard edges, and a heady finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years." (WA)

"Dark ruby. Fragrant floral aromas of red cherry and raspberry jam complicated by balsamic vinegar and vanillin oak. Bright and fresh on entry, with flavors of cassis and cocoa lifted by violet, then impressive and long on the finish, with mounting tannins. A very rich, thick wine from Haut-Bergey that will need time in the cellar to shed its oaky veneer." (IWC)

"Blending 65% Cabernet Sauvignon with 35% Merlot produced a wine filled with licorice, smoke, oak and cassis. This suave, round, soft textured, Bordeaux wine ends with earthy, blackberry and coffee." (JL)

"This is a wine that shows lots of chocolate, tobacco and currants. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. All there.$$" (JS)
