As for their second wine, the 2010 La Parde de Haut-Bailly is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. Attractive, soft and round with notes of berry fruit and some underlying smoke, forest floor and underbrush, it is generously endowed but at the same time elegant and silky smooth. It is best drunk in its first 10–15 years of life.

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.

62% cabernet sauvignon 37% merlot and 1% cabernet franc. It is aged for 18-22 months in new oak. From 27 hectares of gravelly clay soil. Ten percent less production than 2009. This looms much larger than the second wine with a nose full of spice black tea and dried tobacco. Pure power on the palate this is dense but still somehow weightless with tannins packed very tight. Flavors of licorice black cherry truffle and chocolate abound on the palate. The freshness and density balances the 15.1% alcohol. This will drink well for 50+ years. A blockbuster the 2010 La Mission Haut-Brion is a candidate for wine of the vintage. However will this style be for everybody? Cory Gowan.
