Château du Bergey

Château du Bergey

It was apparent from an early age that Olivier Goujon was destined to be a passionate and involved winemaker. He began spending his summers and all of his spare time working in the family vineyards at the age of twelve as well as helping his friends in the Loire with their harvests. As every consumer will drink the wines away from the property, it is important to Olivier & Thierry that tastings happen under the most realistic conditions. Comparative tastings with a second winemaker also take place to give a third independent and honest opinion. Great terroir, leading to stunning acidity of the Merlot grapes, is evident in the still vibrant 2003 tasted against a number of Saint Émilions and Pomerols which are now well past it. Olivier leaves wild grasses to grow among the vines for the simple reason that the blend of clay and chalk is optimum for holding water. Leaving the grass means that principally if it rains just before harvest, the grapes do not become bloated and diluted.
