Chateau Haut Bailly ajalugu läheb tagasi 16. sajandisse, kui Daitze perekond omandas maalapid ja alustas viinapuude kasvatamist. Tänapäeval kasvatavad nad viinapuid 30 hektari suurusel alal, millest 60 % on Cabernet Sauvignoni all. Viinapuude keskmiseks vanuseks on 35 aastat, samas 4 hektaril kasvavad neil ka rohkem kui 100 aasta vanused viinapuud. Viinamarjad alati korjatakse ja sorteeritakse käsitsi , et saavutada parim kvaliteet. Hiljem toimub kääritamine suurtes tsemendist vaatides. Veini laagerdumine toimub tammest vaatides, millest 55% on uued vaadid.

Segu: 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot ja 3% Cabernet Franc

James Suckling – 98 Points

Wonderful aromas of tobacco, sweet fruit and licorice follow through to a full body with ultra-fine tannins that caress every inch of your palate. Love the length and subtlety to this young wine. Gorgeous. Drink after 2024.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 98 Points

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.

Jeb Dunnuck – 98 Points

Matching the brilliant 2015, the 2016 Château Haut Bailly checks in as a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc brought up in 60% new French oak. This sensational effort boasts a deep purple color as well as a massive bouquet of crème de cassis, tobacco leaf, crushed flowers, and graphite, with just hints of smoky earth emerging with time in the glass. Deep, medium to full-bodied, and concentrated, it’s nevertheless all about finesse and elegant, and this beauty just glides across the palate. Reminding me a little bit of the 2009 with its textural richness and length, it’s another awesome wine from Véronique Sanders that’s capable of keeping for 30+ years.
