"A beautiful effort from Helene Garcin, the 2011 Barde-Haut is dominated by Merlot blended with Cabernet Franc. It boasts an impressively saturated plum/purple color as well as an attractive bouquet of creme de cassis, sweet cherries and bluer, mountain-like fruit. With good crunchiness, vibrant acidity, a sweet core of red and black fruits and medium body, this sleeper of the vintage should drink well for a decade or more. Normally this is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc."

"This pumps out some mouthfilling plum, blackberry and boysenberry compote notes, studded with licorice snap and fruitcake hints and backed by a long, charcoal-studded finish. Shows ample toast. A not-shy version that should knit together well. Best from 2016 through 2023." Reviewed by: Wine Spectator - 91pts
