The 2004 Haut-Bailly is a candidate for the finest wine of the appellation. Its dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by classic aromas of scorched earth, sweet black currants, cherries, and a hint of pain grille. Light on its feet, but substantially flavored, it possesses stunning purity, good acidity, ripe tannin, and abundant flavor as well as length. It builds incrementally and subtly in the mouth, but it’s the real deal. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2024.
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.
