DOMAINE Château Haut Bergeron - Sauternes, Bordeaux Graves

Centenary vines.

Small pre-phylloxeric plot planted in 1896 in one of the most beautiful soils of the Sauternes appellation. 1996 marks the beginning of a series of exceptional centenarian cuvées.

Despite an exuberant quantity of sugar (between 450 to 500g of sugar per liter before fermentation), the result is surprising freshness, precision and balance.

A wide aromatic palette and an endless length. Sun in the bottle. Only the greatest vintages offer us a few bottles of this truly exceptional wine : only 8 vintages in 20 years.
