Jeff Leve - TheWineCellarInsider.com, May 2016
Medium bodied, firm, fresh, crisp style of wine, with an earthy, fresh plum, thyme, smoke and espresso perfume. This is probably close to fully mature.

The aromas are rich, with layers of red berry, cherry, spice and coffee, with a slight floral note on the fringes. The palate is medium bodied, offering good tannic grip and a streak acidity that keeps the palate lively. Flavors mimic that of the aromas picking up a note of mocha on the finish. Drink now and over the next 10 years.

Winery

Barde-Haut

Chateau Barde-Haut is a 17-hectare estate located at the extreme east of the village of Saint-Emilion with its vineyard forming a natural amphitheater with a southern exposure. The soil is very typical of Saint-Emilion, mainly composed of clay which on a layer of chalk.

The property was bought in 2000 by Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard, whose family also owns Clos L’Eglise in Pomerol, Chateau Haut-Bergey and Chateau Branon in Pessac Leognan. Significant investments have been made in the cellar and all work is done by gravity to ensure the grapes are well respected.

Chateau Barde-Haut was promoted to Grand Cru Classe in the 2012 classification of Saint-Emilion wine and is one of the rising stars of Saint-Emilion.
