Château Barde-Haut Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

$44.99

An awesome Saint Emilion, the 2015 Château Barde-Haut showed even better on this occasion than on release. A huge nose of sweet crème de cassis, jammy blackberries, violets, leather, and dried herbs gives way to a full-bodied wine that has a great mid-palate, ripe, silky tannins, not a hard edge to be found, and a great, great finish. I love it even today, yet it has a full two decades of prime drinking ahead of it. Jeb Dunnuck

On the nose; ruby plums, dark cherries, blackberries, chocolate, mocha, baking spices and dark florals. On the palate, nice ruby; plum, blackberries, dark cherries,& raspberries. Powdery grippy minerals, crushed rocks, nice acidity, M body and M+ tannins with a nice round fruit driven finish.

It is Thursday night and I stopped by my store of choice and picked-up two Right Bank Bordeaux, both in the $30 range. The first one I have opened tonight is the 2015 Château Barde-Haut from Saint-Emilion. On the nose I find good dark fruit, black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, vanilla, graphite, herbs, violets, faint oak and cedar. On the palate there is black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, green bell pepper, light oak, spice and dusty earth. I find the wine to be medium to full bodied with racy medium + to high acidity and medium + grippy mouth coating tannins that lead right into a long dark fruit finish. I want to wish everyone a wonderful weekend and please stay safe. Nostrovia!

Plum, mulberry, exotic spice - very St. Emilion and in a good way. Starts off sweet on the palate, followed with bright acidity. Might seem disjointed at first but it’s quite complete. Fine tannins and good length. Great with food, esp. cheese. A very nice wine.

From memory: very nice, needed 4+ hours in decanter to open up. Worth another try. $47.

Dark ruby color and a dark edge. Dark berries, tobacco, soil, wet leaves, wood and bandaids. Nice balance of dark fruit and leaves/wood aroma. Medium body. Nice soft tannin. Great balance of alcohol, fruit and tannin. Probably at its peak now through additional 5 years. Great vintage and good wine

Love it. One of my favorite Bordeaux's from St. Emilion. Taste of dry grape, chalk and small amounts of graphite.

Black cherry. Fruit-forward. 89.7% Merlot, 19.3% Cab Franc. Super smooth finish. Great bottle on it’s own or with food. Enjoyed with double cream Gouda and rosemary crackers - especially good with the rosemary.
