TASTING NOTE: A tiny crop of 18 hecto- liters per hectare (the result of the mid- May hail damage) lead to an opaque purple- colored, richest, most concentrated, biggest Barde-Haut made to date. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2009 possesses an intense bouquet
of mulberries, boysenberries, charcoal, toast, and graphite. Extremely full-bodied, thick, and viscous with good freshness and definition as well as sweet, but high tannins, this beauty can be enjoyed over the next two decades. Drink: 2010-2030. (Tasted two times.) Score: 93-95* (RP) 197772 (XD)
