General information


Chateau Haut Bergey is a wine from Bordeaux,region of France ,with 115000ha and 60 different AOC, the Bordeaux vineyard is the oldest and the largest fine wine region in the world. Ideally located in the South-West of France, this area provides an excellent environment for wine growing due to its exceptional oceanic and temperate climate. This vineyard offers a wide wine assortment with very specific characteristics.
Divided in six different sub-regions which are Medoc, Graves and Sauternais on the left side of the Garonne river, Blaye and Libournais on the right side of the Dordogne river and finally the Entre-deux-Mers area which is located between these two rivers. Bordeaux soils are more clay and limestone, even if sand and gravel are found on the left side. The main red grapes of the region are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The three white grapes are Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle. Bordeaux vineyards produce red and white wines, sweet white wines, sparkling and Claret which is the typical well flavoured rose of Bordeaux.
Due to all those particularities and the consistent level of quality, Bordeaux can be considered as one of the finest showcases of French quality wine. Moreover the region has different rankings like the 1855, the ranking of Graves, Saint-Emilion classification and the Medoc classification of Crus Bourgeois that rewards the quality of this world known terroir.


Chateau Haut Bergey is located in Bordeaux's sub-region of Pessac-Leognan ,The Bordeaux vineyard, covering almost all the Gironde department is known for the excellent environment for growing wines. This vineyard offers a wide wine assortment with very specific characteristics. The Garonne river defines the main sub-division of the region. On the right bank, the regions of Blaye-Libournais and Entre-Deux-Mers. On the left bank, Graves, Medoc and Sauterne. Bordeaux wines are terroir driven wines, wines reflect the place they are from. The soils nature is very diverse producing white and red wines. Red wines are produced on gravelly sandy siliceous alluvium soil. White wines are from calcareous alluvial silt or sandstone soil. The oceanic climate of Bordeaux also contributes in grapes quality.


  • Cabernet Sauvignon(54%)  
    One of the most cultivated grape variety in the world. Often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, it is grown in nearly every wine producing country, thanks to its hardy constitution. It can be identified by its thick skin and some low yields. In a blend, Cabernet-Sauvignon brings tannins, structure and acidity, which are the keys to a perfect aging process. Californian Nappa Valley has espacially well worked this varietal, which is the main factor of its extrordinary recognition and success. Known for its vegetal flavors such as mint and eucalyptus, Cabernet Sauvignon can turn a wine with herbaceous dominances if harvested too green.
  • Merlot(46%)  
    It is the most representative grape of Bordeaux, covering 60% of the vineyard. It is found mainly in the Libournais, on the "right bank" of the Garonne, especially in Saint Emilion and Pomerol. This grape is easily exportable thanks to its adaptability to different soils. It matures very quickly on gravelly soils, but it is clay soils of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion that fit it best. There, the fruit is expressed all in delicacy, offering floral notes of violet, peony, and of black and red fruits. Among all Bordeaux varieties, Merlot is the one which offers roundness and smoothness to the wine. Over time, these flavors evolve towards undergrowth aromas, marked by mushrooms, truffles, tobacco and even old leather.


In the 15th century the Seigneur de la Louviere and the Seigneur d'Olivier got to work on the reparcelling of agricultural land and so was born 'La maison noble de Pontey' today named Chateau Haut-Bergey. In 1700 Sir Jean-Fran ois de Cresse, a member of parliament of Bordeaux, took it over and used it as his permanent residence. By 1772 the estate stretched over 100 hectares of vineyard. A hundred years later, though the vineyard was abandoned and in 1850 a splendid castle was reconstructed becoming a leisure residence. It was in the middle of the last century the castle returned to the wine growing roots of the past. In March 1991 Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard acquired Chateau Haut-Bergey. Granddaughter of a wine merchant and a successful business women, her approach has always been the one of a connoisseur appreciating great wine.


Beautiful wine made by a sustainable agriculture.
