Marks and reviews
Located on the famous Saint-Emilion appellation, Chateau Barde-Haut is a historic, 250-year-old estate. Patrice Leveque and Helene Garcin-Leveque have given their all for this estate with enormous potential to gain a little more quality and renown each day.
The vines of Chateau Barde-Haut are ideally located on a south-facing natural amphitheater overlooking the Dordogne. A Saint-Emilion limestone base, as well as clay, which gives strength to the wines, can be found on the soils of the property.
After a rainy winter and a particularly hot February, the vines underwent an early budding, followed by an equally early and homogeneous flowering.
The 2020 vintage of Chateau Barde-Haut is characterized by a rich fruit, voluptuous on a silky palate, powerful but perfectly balanced between a tension and an elegance, making for a harmonious whole. This is a perfectly made wine which will be accessible at a fairly young age and which is already showing great aging potential.
