Since taking over her family's business in the early 2000s and settling in with her family in St Emilion, the ever jovial Hélène Garcin-Lévêque has greatly increased the level of quality at her estates while bringing a breath of fresh air to the Bordeaux business overall. A savvy lady of the vine first and foremost, she initiated a program of organic and sustainable vineyard management across each of her estates. This commitment to soil and vine began to take root almost immediately, and can easily be discerned across even the earliest vintages under her control. In particular, at Haut Bergey in Pessac Leognan, these sloped, south-by-southwest exposed vineyards, with their gravely terroir greatly benefited from intensive vineyard work and strict hands-on approach. The Chateau is now in the hands of Paul Garcin (brother of Hélène Garcin-Lévêque / Clos L'Eglise, Barde Haut, Branon). Chateau Haut Bergey is living its revolution once again. Paul found the truth of his Pessac Leognan terroir through organic & biodynamic vineyard management.


Attractive violets, cassis and wild herbs on the nose, which leads into a sturdy palate, which has a firm wedge of tannins amid flavors of currants and cassis. Best from 2020.

This has a sappy core of kirsch and plum preserve flavors, laced with bright, fresh bay leaf and savory notes. A well-buried iron spine holds the finish, letting the fruit play out. Fleshes out nicely in the glass. Very solid. Best from 2019 through 2027. 10,000 cases made.

The 2015 Haut-Bergey has turned out beautifully. Dark cherry, plum, hard candy and mint are all pushed forward. This decidedly succulent Pessac Léognan has gained considerable body, texture and complexity in barrel. Today, it is terrific.
