The result of a blend dominated by Merlot (90%) and supplemented by Cabernet Franc, Château Barde-Haut 2013 was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 80% of which were new.
On tasting, Château Barde-Haut 2013 presents a brilliant nose of fruit expression, with notes reminiscent of black berries and plum. Aeration highlights the sweetness of spicy notes and the minerality of the vintage. On the palate, the wine seduces with its depth and richness, displaying a nicely structured mouthfeel. A reference of Saint-Emilion.
