An elegant and stylish Grand Cru Classé from Saint-Emilion

The vines covering the 17 hectares of Château Barde-Haut, a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé owned by the Lévêque family (who also own Château de Chantegrive in Graves), were hand-picked under excellent and peaceful conditions. The beautiful previous season had helped the team manage the harvest. Consisting of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, Barde-Haut 2016 is a Saint-Emilion wine that, in this vintage, reveals more finesse than boldness. The wine expresses great balance in both the nose and mouth.

With its very pronounced, almost inky, purplish colour, the Barde-Haut of 2016 boldly expresses aromas of smoke, plum and black cherry. It is elegant, refreshing and moderately delicious. On the palate, the wine is a real revelation: Barde-Haut has a certain class with a smooth tannic structure, creamy upon tannins of great maturity and finesse. The wine has clarity, considerable weight and an appreciable refreshing quality. The retro-olfaction is juicy, fruity and the final guarantee of great keeping potential. 2016 has definitely been a great year for Barde-Haut.

Parker : 93+ / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Barde Haut is composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up expressive wild blueberries, kirsch, baked plums and spice box notes with hints of cracked pepper, lavender, garrigue and Provence herbs. Medium to full-bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, the palate bursts with blue fruits, framed by firm, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long.
