(This vintage always seems to rank in the top tier in any retrospective I do.) Still ruby/purple-hued with a huge nose of blackcurrants, black cherries, unsmoked tobacco, toasted spices, and loamy earth, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, no hard edges, sweet tannins, and remarkable purity of fruit. It's a stunning Saint-Emilion to drink over the coming two decades or more. collapse

Rich full-bodied and opulent with silky tannins as well as a broad unctuous texture this beauty can be enjoyed now and over the next 15+ years. It is fashioned from a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. One of the super values in Bordeaux is proprietress Helene Garcin's Barde-Haut estate. (She has also done a magnificent job with several other Bordeaux properties particularly Clos l'Eglise in Pomerol and Branon and Haut-Bergey in Pessac-Leognan as well as in Argentina.) collapse

The lush finish picks up definition though with a nice singed apple wood note and solid drive. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2013 through 2025. -JM collapse

At once dense and juicy with terrific sappy concentration to its powerful but fine-grained dark fruit and sexy oak flavors. Has the sheer grip and energy to buffer its captivating sweetness. Finishes with serious building dusty tannins and terrific chocolatey persistence. A superb vintage for this clay-over-chalk vineyard and a lot of wine for the price. collapse

Sweet on entry, with tongue-lashing tannins. This concentrated wine could be the richest, most complex, and densest in the first flight of five. Despite its size, #5 is balanced and harmonious. We really enjoy the big vanilla, candied fruit, and strawberry flavors. Long finish. A winner all the way, with a great future. collapse

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.
