Located in the famous Saint-Emilion appellation, Château Barde-Haut is a historic 250-year-old property. Since 2000, Patrice Lévêque and Hélène Garcin-Lévêque have invested all their energy into ensuring that this property, with its enormous potential, increases its quality and reputation every day.
Château Barde-Haut produces Saint-Emilion wines from a 16.89-hectare vineyard. Ideally situated in a natural amphitheatre facing south and overlooking the Dordogne, this terroir rests on clay-limestone soils.
Vinification in concrete and stainless steel vats. Aged for 18 to 24 months in oak barrels.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Barde-Haut gives up notions of plum preserves, potpourri and baked cherries with underlying Chinese five spice and cigar box hints. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm backbone of grainy tannins and background freshness supporting the spicy black fruits, finishing on a lingering earthy note.
