A splendid Haut-Brion with wonderful elegance. Refines tannins. Dark-colored, with beautiful ripe berry, cherry and very smoky nuances. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, plush texture on the finish. Best after 2001.

A wine of complexity and harmony rather than power, Haut-Brion is showing tobacco, cedar and leather aromas melded with some fairly serious black fruit. It resembles the superb 1985 at a similar stage, suggesting this has a good ten years before it peaks. And it will be lovely for 20 years thereafter.

Wonderful finesse and length to this wine. Loads of plum and berry, with hints of raspberry. Full-bodied, with a solid, velvety core of ripe fruit and tannins. Long finish... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Haut Bailly 750ml

...Roasted plum, currant, tobacco and minerals on the nose. Compellingly dense and thick but almost miraculously lively and light on its feet. Has a texture like liquid velvet, coating the entire palate. Wonderfully unmanipulated wine, with perfectly... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Amazingly harmonious, complex and supple, with intense, generous plum, currant, spice, cedar, cherry and anise flavors that have a wonderful sense of finesse and grace. The tannins are intense yet graceful, allowing the flavors to pour through on the finish. Best to cellar until 2001 to 2009.

This is the best Haut-Brion since 1959 and perhaps one of the best Bordeaux we have ever tasted. It has loads of character, packed to the brim with fruit and tannins. A wine for the next century. Enjoyable now, but much better after 1998.

Patience will be rewarded with this style of Bordeaux that typifies restraint and subtlety. The deep ruby-colored 2000 is an impressive youthful Haut-Bailly. It offers endearing notes of black cherries raspberries and currants mixed with tobacco smoke soil overtones and subtle wood. The acidity is low the tannin is present and the overall quality is pure and well-balanced. This is a classic example of finesse and elegance... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Winemaker's Notes:

Beautiful color, very deep with a mixing of the Haut-Brion ruby and its purple-violet shade of youth. Swishing the wine around in the glass gives a notion of its density. This complexity is followed up in the aromas that suddenly burst forth all at once: a woody hint of fine polished oak, mulberry jam, cherry pits, a touch of blackcurrant, and the bittersweet of mango. One discovers this complexness again with even more violence in the mouth. The specific notes of this vintage: the finesse of mocha, the toasted trace of praline all join with the above, melding together with tannins of great complexity and softness. The finish is never ending… Exceptional bottle. To be drunk today, tomorrow and surely even 100 years from now.
