Tasting Note:

Veronique must have been doing some DIY in the chateau, there was a distinct aroma of MDF in the Haut Bailly 2017. Apart from the aisles of B&Q, this also conjured up notes of cherry liqueur and gravel. Although difficult to assess on the nose, the palate displays clearly the class of this terroir. This is so pure and lavish at the same time as being tight knit and reserved. The fruit is refined and engaging; sweet cassis and cranberry tantalize the taste buds before the exceptional tannins gently caress with detailed black and red fruits and hints of stones. Classy and refreshing, with wonderful tension and energy. Superb!
