BORDEAUX - Château Barde-Haut 2012




Blend : Merlot 90%, Cabernet Franc 10%.
Dress : A dense and polished red for the vintage 
Tasting notes : Dried strawberry, raspberry and chocolate character. Full body, firm tannins and a pretty finish.
Great success for Barde-Haut.

History : 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 Château are well respected.

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.
