K&L Notes

Helene Garcin Leveque has transformed this beautiful estate’s winemaking facility to state of the art, and the wines clearly reflect this. This wine features flashy, beautiful Merlot fruit with some toasty oak—hard not to love now and a tremendous value from the Right Bank that excelled in 2012. 91-93 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "...A lifted, rounded, quite sensual bouquet with a lot of fleshy, expressive Merlot fruit. It is modern in style, very pure and generous. The palate is nicely poised with sumptuous red berries, kirsch, a touch of white pepper and a nice grip on the finish that refrains from becoming over-powering. Excellent. Tasted April 2013."

    I was worried that the freshness might have left St. Emilion- trampled by points and pundits. Luckily, this very well balanced Barde Haut is proof that refreshing purity can still be found on the right bank of the river. This sweet fruited, pure, plummy Bordeaux will drink well with an hour in the decanter and a skirt steak now, or for many years into the future.
