Pessac-Léognan - Cru Classé de Graves

 

96/100 Parker

By Robert M. Parker in 2011: "A candidate for the title of "wine of the vintage," the 2008 Haut-Bailly is incredibly complex. Telltale notes of pencil shavings, charcoal, damp earth, black cherries, and cassis intermixed with a hint of subtle barbecue smoke are present in this classic, quintessential Graves. Medium-bodied with emerging, early complexity, it is a super pure, beautifully textured, long wine that can be drunk now or cellared for 20-25 years. Bravo!"

 

  

MORE INFO:

Terroir Today: The 33-hectare vineyard of Chateau Haut Bailly has 30 hectares planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. This represents a change in the vineyard with less Cabernet Sauvignon, more Petit Verdot, and a reduction in Cabernet Franc over the years.

In fact, as the Cabernet Franc vines die, they are now being replaced by Cabernet Sauvignon. There is also a very small percentage of Malbec and Carmenere.

The terroir consists of gravel, sandstone and sand over limestone soils. The sandstone of the soils contains a large number of petrified fossils, which adds to the unique character of the wine. The vineyard consists of one large block of vines, which is separated only by a small road in the vineyard.

I love this site. Whether it's for old wines, or recent ones. The choice of partner estates is impressive, and allocations are sold at fair prices. Ludovic's advice is always excellent.
