TN: 2000 Château Barde-Haut (France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru)

  • 2000 Château Barde-Haut - France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru (5/2/2013)
    This is by far the best showing I’ve had. I never saw the QPR Parker pimped before but this has redeemed my initial enthusiasm. Very nicely balanced. No gobs of fruit or roasted/port crap. Some mocha and violets with a vibrant finish which bounces with acidity. Not much smoke or cream. Rather precise. Before today I was dreading the remaining 6 bottles, now I’m happy I have more. (91 pts.)

Thanks for the encouraging note. I actually (at my advanced age) bought two of the 09!


…6 hours later, cedar and very nice structure. Quite interesting.

Went to tasting at the Chateau; the owners are incredibly nice people, and the wines are getting better all the time.
