Tasting Notes

"This young wine shows such pinpoint precision with a full body, dense fruit and gorgeous intensity. Muscular yet toned and beautiful. It really builds on the finish. Very fine-grained. So long and beautiful. Sophisticated power. Oyster shell and iodine undertones. Traditional style yet with a modern interpretation. Savory."

98-99 points - James Suckling, April 2017

"The 2016 Haut Bailly is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc picked between 26 September until 18 October. Coming in with 13.6% alcohol and an IPT of 81, which is quite close to 2010, this was quite closed at first and so I allowed my sample 15-20 minutes to open while discussing the vintage with Véronique Sanders and technical manager, Gabriel Vialard. It has a classic bouquet that is certainly less opulent and extravagant than recent vintages. This is more controlled and focused, beautifully delineated with blackberry, cedar and Earl Grey aromas that gently waft from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine-grain tannin, sappy with superb delineation and real weight and presence in the mouth. There is just the right amount of spice and salinity, the latter beckoning you back for another sip and there is a haunting pencil lead note that forms the closing credits on the aftertaste. What a brilliant Haut-Bailly, perhaps the best that I have tasted in almost 20 years of tasting at this estate."

The Producer

ChâteauHaut Bailly

Château Haut-Bailly is not only one of Bordeaux’s most prestigious wine estates. The Wilmers family, owners of Haut-Bailly since 1998, support the chateau’s constant ‘sense-driven’ progression with heart and soul.

In a continuation of this philosophy, Haut-Bailly’s new winery embodies their desire to bring winemaker and wine lover closer than ever before. Haut-Bailly is first and foremost a functional space in which Gabriel Vialard and his team can refine their skills and embark on their yearly creation. By providing better tools, a more comfortable place to work and an open environment in which savoir-faire can be cherished by all, Haut-Bailly believes that a sense of value and pride will encourage even greater creations in the future.
