Description

The outstanding 1999 Barde Haut is elegant, complex, savory, and hedonistic. A dark ruby/purple color is followed by copious quantities of black fruits intermixed with toasty oak and licorice. It is sweet and expansive, with low acidity, medium body, and a lush finish.Drink it over the next 10 years. Seductive stuff! - WA89

The Winery

Chateau Barde Haut is a 17 hectare estate located at the extreme east of the village of Saint-Emilion. The vineyard forms an natural amphitheatre and is particularly well exposed to the south. The soil is very typical of Saint Emilion being mainly composed of clay which is found on a layer of chalk.

There has been significant investment in renovating the cellar so that all work is completely done by gravity to ensure that the precious grapes of the Chateau are well respected. The cellar is equiped with wooden vats, stainless steel tanks and concrete vats of 50 to 70 hl. A strict policy of selection to ensure the quality is undertaken and individual steps including pigeage are all carried out by hand. It is the combination of exceptional soil and the introduction of natural wine producing and winegrowing technologies combining tradition and modernity that have made Chateau Barde Haut one of the rising stars of Saint Emilion.
