Located in the municipality of Preignac, l’Ilot de Haut Bergeron is the only plot in the Sauternes that can boast this unique location on an island. In the late 80s Chateau Haut Bergeron purchases the plots on the island and immediately replanted the vines, which are now reaching a very respectable age of 25 years. In 2008 a second purchase was made, now covering the entire island of about 5 hectares.
This island in the middle of Ciron river, which is so dear to Sauternes, enjoys an exceptional microclimate. It is a cradle surrounded by wood where moisture strongly enhances the development of this fungus Botrytis cinerea. Due to its location, it offers quite unusual terroir wines of great freshness with finesse and elegance. Enjoyed young, they will reveal great aromas: citrus, litchi, vanilla or acacia flower. This wine can be drunk as aperitif, with a foie gras starter or traditionally as a desert wine. Only 15~20,000 bottles are produced annually. The wine is a blend of Semillon (90%), Sauvignon Blanc (5%) and Muscadelle (5%)
