Chateau Haut Bailly Pessac Leognan 2004
RP93: "The 2004 Haut-Bailly is a candidate for the finest wine of the appellation. Its dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by classic aromas of scorched earth, sweet black currants, cherries, and a hint of pain grille. Light on its feet, but substantially flavored, it possesses stunning purity, good acidity, ripe tannin, and abundant flavor as well as length. It builds incrementally and subtly in the mouth, but it’s the real deal." - Robert Parker
Just outside of Bordeaux, Château Haut-Bailly sits in a 74-acre vineyard at the heart of the Graves region. Under the new leadership of Robert Wilmers and the management of Veronique Sanders, Chateau Haut-Bailly develops wines in a distinctive style that combines classicism with modernity. This is a Left Bank Bordeaux blend full of cedar, tobacco, and sweet black currant. Stunning purity and abundant flavor.
