Other Reviews....
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Barde-Haut comes skipping out of the glass with bright, cheery black plums, Morello cherries, black raspberries and mulberries scents plus suggestions of dusty soil, cinnamon stick, pencil shavings and lavender. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has wonderful energy, with a lively line of freshness and well-played, rounded tannins, finishing with an invigorating lift.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Advocate

The 2019 Barde-Haut is an opulent, full-throttle Saint-Émilion. Inky dark fruit, chocolate, licorice, cloves and menthol power through in a heady, exotic Saint-Émilion that very much reflects the opulent style of the year. Today, the tannins are equally imposing, which suggests the 2019 is going to need a number of years in bottle to come around. Readers should expected a potent, flamboyantly ripe style.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

The 2019 Barde-Haut has a not dissimilar bouquet to the excellent Poesia, vivacious and intense with black cherries, blueberry, vanilla pod and raspberry that likewise burst from the glass. Lovely purity here. The palate is very well balanced with supple tannins, a fine line of acidity, full of tension and poise with a detailed, cedar and graphite tinged finish. This is a superb Barde-Haute that will give 20+ years of drinking pleasure.

A really fantastic young wine with crushed blackberries, black truffles and stones. White pepper, too. It’s full-bodied, tight and polished with beautiful texture. Excellent, like the 2018.

Classified estate right next to Troplong Mondot, with real emphasis on the salinity of limestone, wrapped in delicious black fruits, soft spices and persistent smoked oak. This is an excellent wine, extremely well put together with clear ageing potential.

Truffle, smoke, mint, charcoal, flowers, cocoa and sweet red berries open the perfume. On the mouth, the wine is full-bodied, lush, silky and rich. Luxuriously textured on the palate, with all the ripe, juicy, sweet plums and cherries you can imagine coated with licorice and chocolate, this wine tastes and feels great in the finish. The wine was made from 75% Merlot with 25% Cabernet Franc, reaching 14.5% alcohol. Clearly, this is a new level of quality for Barde Haut that will age quite nicely for at least 2 decades or longer.
