Château Haut-Bailly, Cru Classé, Pessac-Léognan 2007
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: France: Bordeaux Left Bank
Grape Variety: Bordeaux Blend Red
The 2007 Haut-Bailly has a tertiary, earthy nose and touches of cigar box filtering through the light black fruit. Nevertheless, it has a tough time following the last three vintages. The palate is balanced and fleshy with fine acidity. it is smooth in texture with a touch of balsamic lending edge towards the finish. It tapers slightly because of the challenging growing season. Drink now and over the next five to eight years. Tasted at the Haut-Bailly vertical at the château. 90 point. June 2021. Niel Martin. Vinous.
