Chateau Haut Bailly Pessac Leognan Grand Cru Classe des Graves 2016
2016 Chateau Haut Bailly Pessac Leognan Grand Cru Classe des Graves 750ml - A quintessential Graves wine with a deep, dark fruit profile that intermingles with subtle notes of earth, leather, and spice. The tannins are silky yet firm, promising an exceptional aging potential. This bottle will be a prized addition to any collection.
From an always-impressive estate, this vintage is superb, offering big tannins plus but also generous black fruits and powerful ripeness. Dense and with a good structure for aging, the wine will develop slowly and will not be ready before 2026. Roger Voss
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) -
The 2016 Haut-Bailly is medium to deep garnet-purple in color. The nose opens with beautiful floral notes of violets and lavender accented with earthy notions and sparks of crushed rocks over a core of kirsch, cassis and wild blueberries. Full-bodied, rich and seductive, it has layer upon layer of red, black and blue fruits intermingled with earth and mineral hints leading to a very long, perfumed finish. - Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown
