Situated in the heart of the Monbazillac appellation, Château Haut Bernasse has 14 ha of vines with an enviable southerly aspect and a climate that allows the early morning mist and fog to burn off as the sun rises giving perfect conditions for the development of Botrytis cinerea (Noble Rot).
The 2004 is made up of 85% Sémillon, 10% Muscadelle & 5% Sauvignon Blanc from vines with a minimum age of 25 years. The grapes were hand harvested and pressed in a pneumatic press. Fermentation, using wild yeast, is in stainless steel followed by 2 years ageing in cask.
The wine has a lovely deep golden colour and a nose with ripe fruit aromas and honeyed notes. The palate is full and luscious with layers of intense fruit and marmalade flavours supported by a fine core of balancing acidity.
