Château Haut-Bailly Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan la Parde de Haut Bailly 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

From the WineryThe 2006 vintage of La Parde de Haut-Bailly has a deep, bright, ruby-red colour and plenty of aromatic purity on the nose, showing hints of black fruit and well-integrated oak. It is fairly close to Chateau Haut-Bailly thanks to its elegant, well-focused style. With a refined, mild tannic structure, 2006 La Parde de Haut-Bailly is already quite accessible and will be in superb form in five to ten years.

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

Wood furniture and spice nose. Spice, orange peel on the palate. Light and elegant with great fruit. A top Pessac.

The famed First Growth Bordeaux, Chateau Haut Brion has excelled vintage after vintage with superb quality wines that will live on for decades and retain their value as one of the most collectible wines in the world. This 2006 was scored 96 points by Robert Parker who said "The 2006 Haut-Brion performed even better from bottle than it did from barrel. Sixty-four percent of the production went into this wine, and while it displays the vintage’s powerful tannins and structure, it possesses superb concentration, and the minerality/scorched earth notes of a great Haut-Brion. Medium to full-bodied, with perhaps not quite the fleshiness of the 2005 or 2000, it is built more along the lines of the 1998 and 1996. It is a brilliant effort displaying sensational purity, texture, and length that should be exceptionally long-lived. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2035." This is the lowest price we've ever seen for this wine so don't hesitate, it won't last!

Medium ruby-red. Inviting aromas of plum, warm stones, red licorice and menthol. Suave, gentle and elegantly styled; distinctly sweeter and lusher today than the La Mission, with even more mid-palate depth. Showing more red fruits today as well, with... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Berries, mineral and violet on the nose follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a beautiful floral finish. Starts out earthy, but turns rich and beautiful. Evolves beautifully in the glass. Best after 2013. 6,665 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Haut Bailly 750ml
