(Barrel sample.) This wine has a fine, dense texture that is impressive with its smooth velvet character. The tannins are dark, solid and show a dry side to balance the beautiful juicy fruit. Although this is a second wine, it does have the structure of a wine more senior than that. (RV)
Pure fruit here in a reserved and focused presentation with just a hint of dried roses. Full body, integrated tannins and a fresh, tangy finish. Shows focus and brightness. Second wine of Château Haut-Bailly. Needs two or three years to soften.
The 2015 La Parde de Haut-Bailly is laced with the essence of black cherry, plum, licorice, menthol and grilled herbs. Supple and inviting, the 2015 will drink well upon release, but this deceptively midweight second wine from Haut-Bailly also has more than enough structure to age well for a number of years. The blend is 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. (AG)
This wine needs some time in the glass to fully open, but after a few moments the depth of the fruit starts to unfurl. It's Merlot dominant, but the Merlots at Haut Bailly in the big years have the power of Cabernet, and they are old vines planted at a density of 10,000 per hectare, which helps to slow down the ripening process. It has a beautifully juicy finish. (JA)
Solid, with bramble-edged grip and good drive to the mix of plum, red currant and raspberry coulis flavors, lined with a bright iron streak and backed by a racy savory edge on the finish. (JM, Web Only-2018)
The 2015 La Parde de Haut-Bailly has quite a high-toned bouquet with blueberry and cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, a hint of graphite with ample blackberry and blueberry. This is a structured La Parde de Haut-Bailly, grippy and slightly chalky with a precise finish. This comes recommended. (NM)
