K&L Notes

Here's one of our favorite wines of the vintage. 50% Merlot 50% Cab Sauvignon (usually 65% Cabernet Sauvignon). Blackberry and blueberry aromas with plenty of minerally nuances. Touch of violet. Here is a pure wine, not over extracted or mixed up. Superbly integrated tannins and layers of fruit. Not huge, just elegance personified. Absolutely fantastic.

    Maybe the best of the Left Bank in this Right Bank-centric vintage, the Haut-Bailly shows tons of dense plum fruit framed in a bed of powerful herb and sweet licorice. The palate is wonderfully complex, showing great maturity at this stage, but with no signs of slowing down. A serious wine for serious lovers of Bordeaux that won't necessarily be accessible to the average Joe, but will make the diehards fawn for sure.

    A fantastic wine experience. From the vintage when the "Merlots were blessed by the gods" (can't recall who said that... But it is true!). Beautiful notes of coffee, leather, some capsicum and even honey on this developed wine. The tannins are soft and very much resolved. Incredibly alluring and very elegant.
