Readers will find a rich, flamboyant wine in the 2016 Barde-Haut. There is not a ton of subtlety here, but I am not sure that matters all that much given how immensely pleasing the 2016 is. Crushed rocks, graphite, lavender, blackberry, plum, and violet infuse a Saint-Émilion that offers tremendous textural richness as well as vibrancy. Most importantly of all, the 2016 is flat-out delicious. This is a decidedly opulent, dark Saint-Émilion with all of the elements impeccably balanced. I loved it.

Sipping Fine Wine

Chateau is a 17 hectare estate located at the extreme east of the village of Saint-Emilion. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc with rich aromas of red fruits and spice. On the palate flavors of black cherry, currants and ripe blackberry with notes of tobacco, leather and sweet spice. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit and subtle spice. Very Nice.

On the nose; sweet, dark cassis. Ripe blackberries, black raspberries, black plum, baking spices and fresh dark floral bouquet. Still fresh. The fruits are; ruby, ripe cassis, black raspberries, black plum & black raspberries. Tarry notes, rich dark soils, vanilla, dry crushed rocks, dry top soil, round acidity and a lush, elegant finish. Barrel sample of the 2016 vintage brought from Bordeaux.
