Chateau Haut-Bailly is situated on the left bank of the River Garonne, south of Bordeaux  in the commune of  Pessac-Léognan –  home to all the Graves Crus Classés. A vineyard with 30 hectares (74 acres) of planted vines on one piece of  land, it sits on a high ridge overlooking a small winding road leading from Leognan to Cadaujac. The sloping terrain is well-graded and has excellent drainage. If great wine results from a harmonious relationship between man, the vine, and nature – a concept the French call terroir – the most subtle of these three elements is the soil. At Haut-Bailly, it is sandy, mixed with gravel, and rests on a subsoil of sandstone petrified with the remains of prehistoric fossil shells. All this contributes to the special character of Haut-Bailly wine. Read less

A very austere start, soft and smooth, however, it built slowly to a beautiful finish. Tasted at the New York Wine Experience

Maybe I drank this too young? I just wasn't impressed.

Full bodied, long after taste that "echos". Has a complex texture and expandable palate.. Poultry and powerful nose, full and round with strawberry and cherry notes.. Hints of spice and "saltiness" with a finishing of marvelous desire for another gulp, not sip. To drink one of the Big Five, if I were you, I like to try another vintage. For this vintage, the finishing might be sexier shall the wine matures after 5-10 years from now. In Summary: Almost perfect, just the "finishing"

Chateau La Tour Haut Brion Pessac Leognan Full ruby-red. Inky black cherry and bitter chocolate aromas. Suave; strong acidity gives excellent flavor delineation. Bitter chocolate and black cherry are lifted by a floral element. Best on the long finish: impressive tannic structure.

"An atypically high percentage of Merlot (61%) in addition to 19% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon make up the 2004 Haut-Brion. Fifty-five percent of the production was utilized for the grand vin, a surprisingly forward, charming,

Good medium ruby. Blueberry and pungent minerality on the nose. Dense, pure and high-pitched; impressive for its definition and grip but not at all lacking in flesh. Finishes with chewy, gripping tannins and excellent length.

Wonderful aromas of dried flowers, currant, berries and mineral. Full-bodied, yet reserved and refined. Lovely texture, with a pure silk feel. Seamless and beautiful. Great length. Even better than from barrel. Best after 2012. 12,500 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2004 Haut Brion 750ml
