Tasting Notes

WA96

A candidate for the -wine of the vintage,- the 2008 Haut-Bailly possesses incredible complexity. Tell-tale notes of lead pencil shavings, charcoal, damp earth, black cherries and black currants intermixed with a hint of subtle barbecue smoke are present in this classic, quintessential Graves. Medium-bodied with an emerging, precocious complexity, it is a super-pure, beautifully textured, long wine that can be drunk now or cellared for 20-25 years. Bravo!

WE93

While at this young stage there may be toasty aromas, there is also intense, perfumed fruit. This complex, distinguished wine is polished, with plenty of bright fruits and acidity.

The Winery

Haut Bailly

Hailing from the Pessac-Léognan appellation of Bordeaux and ranked among the Graves Cru Classés, Haut Bailly is a tour-de-force in the region. The château has roots dating back to 1461 and has produced wines for centuries. The estate really took a leap forward in quality at the turn of the millennium following the purchase by American banker, Robert G. Wilmers.

Its 28 hectares of vines planted of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and Cabernet Franc finish up the area. Haut Bailly wines are known for their grip and depth with the silky smoothness that results from the warmer Léognan climate. This is a joy to have, especially in top vintages.
