Chateau Haut Bailly II Pessac Leognan [Pre-arrival] 2019
VM93: The 2019 Haut-Bailly II, the second wine of Haut-Bailly, has accentuated the sous-bois elements on the nose since bottling, now feeling quintessentially Pessac-Léognan and quite marine-influenced in style. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, taut and fresh, still a little piquant on the finish but with more precision than I recall. This is very impressive. Excellent.
JS92-93: Beautiful aromas of sweet tobacco, chocolate and spice follow through to a medium body with sweet tannins and a round, creamy texture. Lovely now. Structured, yet juicy.
