Chateau Barde Haut 2011 Grand Cru 1.5L

"This pumps out some mouthfilling plum, blackberry and boysenberry compote notes, studded with licorice snap and fruitcake hints and backed by a long, charcoal-studded finish. Shows ample toast. A not-shy version that should knit together well." - Wine Spectator

Wine Advocate 90 points

A beautiful effort from Helene Garcin, the 211 Barde-Haut is dominated by Merlot blended with Cabernet Franc. It boasts an impressively saturated plum/purple color as well as an attractive bouquet of creme de cassis, sweet cherries and bluer, mountain-like fruit. With good crunchiness, vibrant acidity, a sweet core of red and black fruits and medium body, this sleeper of the vintage should drink well for a decade or more. Normally this is a blend of 9% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc.- Robert Parker (4/214)
