Puisseguin-St-Emilion is situated 5 miles north-east of the town of St-Emilion. The terrain is hilly and the soils are a mixture of clay and limestone. Haut-Bernat is owned by Dominique Bessineau who also owns Château de Brousse and Château Côte Montpezat in nearby Castillon. There are 4 hectares of vineyards, planted almost exclusively with Merlot. The wines are vinified and matured at Côte Montpezat under the direction of winemaker Stephane Toutounji and consultant oenologist Michel Rolland.
The wines are matured in oak barrels (50% new) for 12 months. These are medium-bodied wines that display seductive fruit characteristics of plums, black cherries and blackcurrants allied with elegantly toasted oak flavours.
