2017 Barde Haut 75CL
Features a seductive core of anise-steeped plum, blackberry and black currant fruit flavors set against a backdrop of singed alder, savory and smoldering tobacco notes. A hint of licorice snap adds a kick on the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Located on the upper, limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion, on the eastern side of appellation, Château Barde-Haut was purchased late in 2000 by Helene Garcin and Patrice Levêque, who together also run Clos l’Eglise in Pomerol and Château Poesia in Saint-Emilion.
Situated near Tour Saint-Christophe, Troplong Mondot, Pavie Macquin, and Trotte Vieille, Château Barde-Haut covers 17 hectares and is planted to 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. A higher elevation, cooler terroir, this is classic Saint-Emilion clay over limestone soils, with the most significant portion of the vineyard being a contiguous, walled parcel located around the winery.
