Château Haut-Bergeron is the story of one of the oldest families in Sauternes, with a winemaking tradition spanning nine generations. The estate began to take shape in 1756 and has continued to grow through the centuries, facing challenges such as warfare and occupation. Over the years, the Lamothe family has expanded the vineyard, acquiring new parcels and building a solid reputation in the fortified wine sector.
The must ferments in new oak barrels and the fermentation proceeds naturally until it reaches an alcohol content ranging between 12.5 and 14.5 degrees, based on the amount of sugar present in the must. In spring, the year following the harvest, the best lots are selected and blended. The wine is then left to mature for 22 months in oak barrels.
Bright golden colour. The aromas are deep, opulent and sophisticated, ranging from the sweetness of honey to the fragrance of vanilla. On the palate, it is rich and solid, with a well-balanced structure and a round, elegant and vigorous character.
The ideal combination is with aged cheeses or complex sweets rich in flavour, otherwise as a great meditation wine.
