Château Haut-Bailly, Cru Classé, Pessac-Léognan 2010
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: France: Bordeaux Left Bank
Grape Variety: Bordeaux Blend Red
The 2010 Haut-Bailly has an outstanding bouquet with intense blackberry, briary, crushed stone and subtle violet scents, more backwards and more precise than the previous vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins and firm grip. Layers of tar and tobacco are infused with black fruit and a touch of liquorice on the finish. This is a Haut-Bailly on another level from previous vintages that will age with style. Superb. Tasted at the Haut-Bailly vertical at the château. 96 Points. Tasted June 2021. Neal Martin. Vinous.
