SKU #1387483
96 points Jeb Dunnuck
Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (3/2020)

95 points James Suckling
Outer quote mark Aromas of blackberries, blueberries, wet earth and black tea. Full-bodied, dense and layered with medium, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows focus and power. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

93 points Vinous
Outer quote mark The 2015 Barde-Haut has a lovely bouquet with black cherries, raspberry and crushed stone, wilted rose petal and iris flower emerging with time. The palate is finely chiseled with crisp acidity, much more precision than previous vintages and added sustain on the finish. A turning point for this Saint-Émilion estate. Tasted at the Barde-Haut vertical at the château. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2021)

93 points Wine Spectator
Outer quote mark A restrained style, with a core of damson plum, raspberry and cassis flavors held in check for now by fine-grained cedar, sanguine and iron hints. There’s racy acidity running underneath and a long, focused finish, so cellar this to let the two sides meld fully. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

92 points Wine Advocate
Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Barde-Haut gives up notions of plum preserves, potpourri and baked cherries with underlying Chinese five spice and cigar box hints. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm backbone of grainy tannins and background freshness supporting the spicy black fruits, finishing on a lingering earthy note. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2018)
