2008 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)
91-93 points Robert Parker: "This beautiful, luscious, sensual St.-Emilion exhibits a deep purple color as well as a sumptuous nose of ink, graphite, blackberries, and cassis. Full-bodied with sweet tannin, admirable concentration, and a long, velvety finish, this superb, fairly priced 2008 is worth checking out. It should drink well for 12-15 years." (04/09) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "Shows blackberry and blueberry aromas, with cassis. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and refined tannins. Long and classy." (04/09) 4 out of 5 Stars from Decanter: "Deep colour. Rich, dense fruit. Supple, layered texture. Tannins ripe, firm and long. Drink 2015-2025." 88-91 points Tanzer: "Inky ruby. Initially reticent nose opens slowly to hint at plum, coffee and game. Sweet and full on entry, even fat, offering rich plum and coffee flavors. Then finishes slightly austere, with a bit of warmth."
