Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com 17.5+

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc. Ripe and creamy on the nose with cassis notes prominent. Really quite flamboyant and seductive for Haut-Bailly. Palate complex and gourmand. Delicious fruit, plenty of stuffing but harmonious as well. Slight minerally edge. Tannins firmly present but finely honed. Lots of charm and drinkability as well. (JL) [03/07/2020]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2045

Vinous 94

The 2009 Haut-Bailly has a very pure bouquet with blackberry, liquorice, hints of star anise and boysenberry jam, opulent and vivacious, a little glossy perhaps? The palate is medium-bodied with very supple and lithe tannin matched with a fine bead of acidity. Lovely balance here, fine tension with a insistent grip, layers of black fruit laced with cedar and graphite towards the very Pauillac-like finish. Superb. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits’ Ten Year On tasting. [Neal Martin, 14/03/2019]

Robert Parker 97

Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 Haut-Bailly hits the ground running with bold black fruit preserves, Morello cherries, baked blueberries and tilled earth scents with nuances of fried herbs, chargrilled meat and a ferrous waft plus a touch of menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the taut palate has a firm, grainy texture with a lively line lifting the core of muscular fruit, finishing long and earthy. [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 22/02/2019]
