Owned by Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard since 2000, Château Barde-Haut is managed by a master hand by her daughter, Hélène Garcin and her husband Patrick Lévêque. The family, very involved in biodiversity on all properties, works without any herbicide or chemical fertilizer. The vineyard is entirely managed according to sustainable agricultural methods.
In 2011, Château Barde-Haut got a new look by investing in new buildings and responsible technologies. The complex is composed of Canadian wells to reduce the thermal amplitudes of the interior spaces of the cellar and vat room, a green roof, a wind turbine supplying outdoor lighting and heat pumps regulating the temperature of the buildings. In 2012, it joined the famous classification of Saint-Emilion as Grand Cru Classé.
The vineyard, oriented like an amphitheater to the south towards the Dordogne valley, extends in one piece on 17 hectares of clay-limestone soils. The average age of the vines is 33 years and the planting density is 7,150 vines / ha. With an intense and attractive colour, the wine is fleshy and powerful, with a beautiful aromatic palate marked by black fruits. Very structured but supple, fresh and tasty, it has a good length on the palate.
