Dark purple color. Fruity nose fresh and of ripe type. Aromatic and fine. Fat on entry the wine develops both with volume and flesh on a body of nice size appearing tasty with a lovely touch fine tannins and a powerful finish. The length is good and aromatic. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com

The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2001 Haut-Bailly reveals sweet, pure, elegant aromas of currants, toast, and cigar smoke. With wonderful sweetness, fine tannins, a delicate, nuanced personality, and a long, persistent finish, this well-made, impressive Pessac-Leognan will provide plenty of pleasure over the next 12ndash;14 years.

Moderately saturated ruby-red. Plum, leather, pepper and oak on the fresh, aromatic nose. Suave, vibrant and penetrating, with sound acids contributing to the impression of inner-mouth energy. In fact, today the winersquo;s acids clash with the tannins, giving the finish a slight dryness. This will need considerable bottle aging to harmonize. In comparison, the 2004 has better balance, as well as more power.

Deep ruby/purple with a wonderful nose of roasted herbs and scorched earth, this wine has sweet cherry and black currant fruit notes along with hints of graphite and toasty oak. While pure, rich, and more powerful than usual, it remains elegant and precise, characteristics of this stylish wine. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2023.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Deliciously concentrated fruit, which shows considerable power and ripeness. Yellow fruits, spice from new wood and richness are already combining well. And just as a reminder that this has Sauvignon Blanc in the blend, there is a touch of fresh herbaceousness at the end."Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar91-94 points*We will notify you on arrival Fall 2011.*
