Chateau Haut-Bailly, Grand Cru Classe, Pessac Leognan, 2011, 75cl

176.00 /L

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.

Winemaker Notes
2011 is a great tribute to the Haut-Bailly terroir, expressed fully through the characteristics of this vintage. It is a classic nose of soft fresh fruits supported by a strong fine until tannic structure. This is a wine of real precision stamped with the seal of Haut-Bailly. It is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 2% Cabernet franc.

Robert Parker Jr. – 93 Points
While the elegant, stylish 2011 Haut-Bailly does not possess the density and concentration of the three vintages that preceded it, this is still outstanding wine as well as a tribute to the impeccable work done by proprietor Robert Wilmers and his manager, Veronique Sanders. Classic red and black currant aromas interspersed with notions of wet stones/crushed rocks, tobacco leaf and spice box are followed by a medium-bodied, well-balanced, impressively pure wine built on finesse and understatement. This beauty is capable of drinking well young or over the next 15+ years.
