Tasting Note:

This sample seemed to get lost in the post, so I didn’t have high hopes. How wrong I was. Despite this being well over a week old, it was one of the best young Haut Baillys I’ve tasted. Produced from 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Beautiful floral fruit: violets, peonies, pure cassis, crème de mûre and a touch of cinnamon. The palate is plush and luxuriant; generous waves of silky hedgerow fruit and vanilla coat the palate. It’s all so harmonious and natural, the integration of oak, the seamless tannins, the effortless complexity – it’s a joy to taste right now!

"Elegance and sophistication are front and center in the 2019 Haut-Bailly. A wine of finesse and understatement, the 2019 reveals itself slowly in the glass. Graphite, crushed rocks, lavender, blackberry and lavender are some of the nuances that develop over time, but more than anything else, the 2019 is all about focus, persistence and simply exquisite overall balance. It is easily one of the highlights of the vintage. 95-97/100". - Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Such totally graceful perfumes to this, showing currants, dried flowers and stones, as well as hints of forest fruit and subtle tar, asphalt and smoke. Full-bodied, yet the texture is pristine with intense, polished and fine-grained tannins. So long, flavorful and ever so beautiful. The finish is never ending. This really is something special. 56% cabernet sauvignon, 36% merlot, 4% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot. 98-99/100". - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com
