2018 Château Haut-Bergey  (Pessac-Léognan) 92

Flowers, cigar box, tobacco, espresso and black cherries are all over the place. On the palate, the wine readily serves up a concentrated dose of espresso bean, dark cocoa, red and black plums and leafy herbs.

2000 Château Haut-Bergey  (Pessac-Léognan) 90

Fully mature, with a smoke, coffee, vanilla, earth, tobacco and black cherry scented nose, the wine is soft, round and open for business. The only drawback is, the amount of oak, some tasters will not like that and the finish is a tad short. On the other hand, the texture and ripe fruit more than offset those other issues. This is probably drinking about as well as it's going to get, as it does not seem to have moved over the past few years. There is no hurry to drink it. It should remain at this level for at least another decade. 90 Points

This is a Jekyll and Hyde wine. The problem is, there is no way to tell who is going to show up, the good doctor, or his alter ego Mr. Hyde. The perfume shows oak, licorice, smoke, coffee, black fruit and hints of vanilla. Full bodied and round in the mouth, with good concentration. The wine ends with some oak and sweet dark cherries. At 10 years of age, this is showing too much oak. Other bottles have displayedless oak while delivering more fruit and freshness. But last night, Dr. Jekyll stayed home, while Mr. Hyde came to dinner and watched the Lakers take down the Celtics! 87 Points
