Château Haut-Bailly Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan 2010
"Great aromas of crushed blackberries with flowers and stones that follow through to a full body, with super silky tannins and a long, long finish. It fills your mouth with beautiful fruit and velvety tannins yet shows tension and form. This lasts for minutes on the palate. Structured and superb....98" JamesSuckling.com 02/13 "An opulently styled effort, the blue/purple-hued 2010 offers a sweet kiss of graphite, charcoal, black cherries, black currants and compelling forest floor-like notes.

External Reviews for Château Haut-Bailly Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan
Deep plum/purple, Haut-Bailly’s 2010 required some coaxing to appreciate its subtle notes of barbecue smoke, lead pencil shavings and creme de cassis as well as its touches of pomegranate and forest floor. The oak is pushed far into the background and the tannins are extremely silky, but the intensity of the wine is profound and the finish lingers for close to 55 seconds. This wine is ripe yet delicate, powerful yet stylish, and essentially resembles a remarkable fashion design from a house of haute couture. This wine needs a good 7–8 years of bottle age and should keep for 40–50+ years.
From 62% Cabernet Sauvignon 36% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc a blend similar to what they used in 2009 the 2010 vintage is the product of low yields. For a comparison 2009 was 46 hectoliters per hectare. In 2010 due to the draught and problems with the Merlot flowering yields were reduced to 37 hectares per hectoliter. Low yields and weather allowed the wine to reach 13.9 % alcohol which is slightly higher than the 13.75 the property enjoyed in 2009. . Inky purple in color with pungent aromas of smoke licorice truffle spice ash tobacco and blackberry liqueur the wine is concentrated deep rich and opulent in texture. With palate staining fruit layers of ripe velvety tannins and a long pure cassis and blackberry finish this wine offers strong competition for the 2009. Veronique Sanders thinks the 2010 is a better wine. I am not sure I agree. But I do know it s going to be a lot of comparing 2010 with 2009 2008 2006 and 2005 over the next few decades. Jeff Leve.
Chewy and brambly but integrated this carries a very hefty core of espresso ganache mulled plum and blackberry fruit. The purity starts to shine through on the finish which drips with cassis and is threaded with a long warm paving stone note. Tight and backward today this extremely well-built wine will need substantial cellaring. Best from 2018 through 2035. -JM Wine Spectator.
62% cabernet sauvignon 36%merlot 2% cabernet franc. A unique terroir of gravelly sand with a high proportion of fossils in the subsoil.Aged for 16 months in 55% new oak.Very dark inky ruby with a nose that has become more terroir-driven with time in barrel. Very rich in blackberry violets saddle leather and cassis but it s the huge structure of the wine with an almost additional midpalate that really amazed me. Chock-full of fine-grained tannins this will be a very long-lived wine. Owned by American Robert Wilmers since 1998 Chateau Haut-Bailly has seen a tremendous resurgence in quality. Cory Gowan.
