CHAT HAUT-BAILLY PESSAC-LEOGNAN 13
Possessing a warm and heavy coco content, Ch. Haut-Bailly has a dark, rich, chocolate nose which is outstanding and lures you in like a siren. It has a sumptuous, unctuousness texture and weight which would hint at a far more decadent year. I am not quite sure how Véronique and her team have pulled off yet another superlative wine that once again out-performs several of the First Growths, but I am delighted that she has. It was one of the most striking wines we tasted in Bordeaux; all we need now is a little bit of corrective pricing and it will be an essential case to add to our cellars. Drink 2020-2035.
