Château Barde-Haut - St.-Emilion (BD Sale) 2019
Vinous Media: 95 Points
"The 2019 Barde-Haut is reluctant to open, but give it time and it reveals blackberry, bilberry, hints of black olive and subtle sea spray aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grip. Quite a structured Barde-Haut, this has gained substance since I tasted it from bottle. Saline and liberally sprinkled with white pepper on the finish. Excellent."

"This beautiful estate is located on the eastern side of the appellation, and they consistently turn out brilliant wines. The 2019 Château Barde-Haut reveals a deep purple hue to go with classic limestone-influenced aromas and flavors of ripe black cherries, chalky minerality, chocolate, and white truffle. More medium to full-bodied and elegant than overtly powerful, its balance is spot on, it has beautiful tannins, and a great finish. It shows the vintage style perfectly and will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age, and cruise for over two decades in cold cellars."
Decanter: 94 Points
"Classified estate right next to Troplong Mondot, with real emphasis on the salinity of limestone, wrapped in delicious black fruits, soft spices and persistent smoked oak. This is an excellent wine, extremely well put together with clear ageing potential."
