Chateau Haut-Bailly 2018 Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux

$294.99

Winemaker Notes
2018 was a year of extremes. The excessive rainfall of winter and spring was followed by drought with a long sunny summer for more than four consecutive months … rare and ideal! The resulting wines are full of color, dense, structured and expressive. Opulence and exceptional quality for a solar vintage.

Blend: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim
James Suckling-99 points
Complex and expressive nose, offering red and dark fruit, spices and pepper with wood and mushroom undertones. Fresh mussel shell and a hint of ink, too. Full-bodied with a fine texture and great balance between the acidity and the controlled, tannic structure. Very long finish. Goes on and on. Tiny production, 21 hectoliters per hectare. Try after 2025.
