2006 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion

SKU #1126163 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London and at the château, the 2006 Château Barde Haut has a soft, raspberry preserve and crushed strawberry-scented bouquet with just a dab of marmalade. The palate is fully matured after ten years with slightly dry tannin on the entry, quite masculine in style and needing more flesh and depth to come through on the finish. (NM)  (5/2016)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright red-ruby. Redcurrant, black raspberry, dark chocolate, licorice, roasted meat and violet on the nose, complemented by sexy oak. Supple, juicy and quite dry, with lovely definition and distinct soil character to the flavors of dark raspberry, spices, licorice and flowers. A cool and distinctly youthful style, but without quite the flesh or expansiveness for a 90-point rating. (ST)  (6/2009)

Wine Spectator

 Subtle aromas of blackberry and cherry follow through to a medium body, with firm tannins and a silky finish. A bit lean now, but balanced and attractive. (JS)  (3/2009)

K&L Notes

90 points Neil Martin: "Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting...a light black cherry, blackberry leaf nose with excellent delineation, if lacking the vivacity I would have hoped for after its impressive showing out of barrel. The palate is medium-bodied, fine tannin and good sense of mineralite, wonderful poise and crispness that is very succulent and for want of a better word, just delicious, even if it is not the over-achiever I once hoped it would become. Tasted January 2010." (Wine Journal) Robert Parker: "This richly fruity, disarmingly charming 2006 exhibits a deep ruby/purple hue in addition to elegant black currant and blackberry fruit intermixed with licorice and underbrush, a plush texture, sweet tannin, and a layered finish. This is a hedonistic wine to enjoy over the next decade." (Wine Advocate, 02/2009)
