Critic Notes

An excellent property from the Garcin family, Barde-Haut tends to be an over-achieving estate, with Helene Garcin and her husband doing a terrific job with their vineyard planted with 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The 2012 has a dense ruby/purple color, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and outstanding concentration, with slight, yet noticeable tannins in the finish keeping it still firm. This is a beautiful wine to drink over the next 10-12 years. Apr 2015, www.robertparker.com
