  • Delivery Information

After the harvest, our grapes are brought directly into our cellars with the greatest care, where they will be pressed. The recovered juices will be classified in different batches, depending on their quality and provenance. But because noble rot dehydrates the grapes, the yields are very low, between 10 to 20 hectoliters per hectare. For comparison, a vine can produce more than one bottle of wine, it is only one glass in Sauternes.

Chateau Haut-Bergeron, one of the oldest producers in Sauternes going back to 1756. Now pretty much everyone has heard the story of their vineyards being next to Yquem', and yes of course Haut-Bergeron's vineyards are next-door to Yquem, but the tale runs a bit deeper than that. Haut-Bergeron was originally owned by the Marquis de Lur-Saluces himself, who in 1847 was invited by the Tsar Nicholas I on a Russian hunting trip. The Marquis instructed workers not to harvest the vineyards while he was away, and on his return the grapes had botrytised... you know the rest.
