WTN: Barde-Haut 2009

by Jim Grow » Wed Nov 01, 2017 8:45 pm

I wanted to check in on this Bordeaux as I have a bit more. Much more resolved this time with a black color and ruby edge and a nose of muted black fruit. The palate is all about sweet cherry with a touch of herb and a slight tannic finish. Not much secondary complexity and that may take some time. Full maturity is maybe 10 yrs. off. I'll let my remaining bottles ? rest for a few years. abv of an amazing 14.6%

Wow, that's high (abv). Haven't had the vintage but am a fan of this label. The 01's are right in the zone now--these do put on great secondary stuff when left along long enough.
My wine shopping and I have never had a problem. Just a perpetual race between the bankruptcy court and Hell.--Rogov
