Chateau Barde-Haut 2001

90+ points

Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux. 13.5%

Dark colour. Complex, savoury nose rather than pretty. A bit funky. Touch mercapten.

Rich but not weighty, nor the least bit extracted. Thankfully not a souped up St Emilion. Has some development ahead of it, enjoyable but still a tad closed. I’m pleased I bought this wine that was quite unknown to me.
