TN: 2000 Château Haut-Bergey (France, Bordeaux, Graves, Pessac-Léognan)

  • 2000 Château Haut-Bergey - France, Bordeaux, Graves, Pessac-Léognan (12/1/2019)
    Excellent showing. Dark core with a ruby edge. Initial nose blew me away. Very feminine, with notes of roses and rhubarb. The perfume hid any trace of oak or wood. However, this feminine nose also came with a more hollow and tart palate.

    After about 30 minutes in the glass the nose transitioned to a more typical graves profile as the roses blew off and left a cherry pie nose with wet soil, a hint of charcoal, maybe a bit of cocoa and pain grille. The middle was incredibly smooth, a bit dusty and became a little more weighted as the bottle sat. Very nice spicy finish.

    As I said, Excellent showing tonight. 93-94 points.
    PS, it did not pair well the early 80's Lou Reed Concert I put on. Rest of the bottle with be consumed with a Europe 72 Dead Show. (93 pts.)

Sounds lovely...some of the mid tier 2000's are really starting to show well. Thanks for the head's up.

Nice note. Sounds much better than the ‘01 I had a couple weeks ago... it was a bit tired and faded, with more oak than fruit.

Nice notes and I found your PS intriguing. Something that I have occasionally thought about myself . . . what music would go with this wine?
An aged man is but a paltry thing,
A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
Soul clap its hands and sing

I think so. I am opening the 2000 Gruaud on Thursday but I suspect that will show much younger.

I had it over the Thanksgiving holiday and it is just beginning to emerge from its slumber. A lot of cool blue fruit, structure obvious, but very approachable and already quite enjoyable IMO.

I drank a few bottles of this in 2018 with mixed results. The first was very good but the second bottle a few months later seemed to have lost all of its fruit. One more to drink in the next few years. Your note gives me hope [cheers.gif]
