Château Haut Bernones is ideal with a roast and superb with venison stew.
The Haut-Médoc is the southern part of the Médoc, home to the communes of Saint Julien, Margaux and Pauillac among others. You'll find some of the world’s most famous châteaux, but lesser known properties, like the 18th century Château Haut Bernones, are well worth seeking out. Situated on excellent gravelly soils (just like its Cru Classé neighbour, Château Beychevelle), the estate has been owned and run by the Ruton family since 1948. Winemaking is overseen by Eric Boissenot, whose expertise is also called upon by such stellar names as Château Latour, Margaux and Léoville Las Cases.An elegant claret with good ageing potential, Château Haut Bernones is ideal with a roast and superb with venison stew.
