About the Winery
Located in St Christophe des Bardes in the east of the St Emilion appellation, in the extension of Trottevieille and Troplong-Mondot, the estate was bought in 2000 by Sylviane Garcin Cathiard, owner since 1991 of Chateau Haut-Bergey in Leognan and sister of Daniel Cathiard, owner of Smith Haut-Lafitte. It is now Sylviane Garcin Cathiard, the owner's daughter, and her husband Patrice Leveque who manage Barde-Haut and the very popular Garcin Cathiard vineyards (Haut-Bergey, Clos L'Eglise and Branon) with the very enlightened support of Dr. Alain Raynaud, consulting oenologist.
