Château Haut-Bailly Pessac-Léognan Pre-Arrival 2012
2012 Bordeaux Future. Delivery Fall 2015. The 2012 La Mission Haut-Brion, which represents 41% of the total production, is a blend of 62% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Lots of tobacco leaf, forest floor, underbrush and red as well as black fruit aromas jump from this aromatic, seductive, open-knit La Mission. Medium to full-bodied, round, generous, lush and flattering to taste, even at this young age.Robert Parker Wine Advocate (91-94 pts.)*We will notify you on arrival. Summer 2015.*
External Reviews for Château Haut-Bailly Pessac-Léognan Pre-Arrival
Lovely purple color. Fruity and fresh nose of a ripe type that also offers a honey characteristic. On the palate the wine appears dense and slightly rustic while it has some fat. The finish is of good length and marked by the wood at this time. Barrel ageing will tell more about it. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com
Offers the racy, taut edge of the vintage, but shows slightly better flesh than its La Chapelle counterpart. In the end, this offers a nice briary edge to its range of red and blue fruits, with a lively iron note on the finish. Tasted non-blind.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Le Clarence de Haut Brion 750ml
52% merlot, 36% cabernet sauvignon, 10% cabernet franc, and 2% petit verdot. Alcohol of 14.4%. A very perfumed nose of spice, vanilla, red licorice, and blue fruits lead to a rich, balanced palate full of fresh fruit. Very taut at this stage, the tan... Cory Gowan.

This is juicy and still compact, with a big core of plum sauce, pastis and graphite, followed by lots of kirsch and sweet spice on the finish. Still needs to unwind. Tasted non-blind. -J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Le Clarence de Haut Brion 6000ml
Dark in structure with a sense of austerity and dark tannins this is a wine that will need time to develop. Theres a hint of tobacco and ripe plum on the palate and the aftertaste promises juiciness. Wine Enthusiast.
Ripe and concentrated this shows all the opulence for which La Mission Haut-Brion is famed. It s dark intense and packed with rich Merlot. Wine Enthusiast.
A prodigious blend of 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Semillon the 2012 Haut-Brion blanc is the Montrachet of Bordeaux. Incredible notes of crushed rocks spring flowers lemon butter tangerine oil honeysuckle and candle wax soar from the glass of this full-bodied white. It totally hides any evidence of being aged in 100% new oak. Sadly there are fewer than 800 cases of this fabulous Pessac-Leognan. It should age well for a half century. Bravo!
