68.7% merlot, 11.7% cabernet franc, and 19.6% cabernet sauvignon. This is the second wine of La Mission Haut-Brion. The 2011 has a very fragrant, high-toned nose of pure cassis.

The saturated ruby/purple-hued 2011 Haut-Bailly exhibits a glorious, subtle, noble set of aromatics consisting of red and black currants, sweet cherries, graphite, truffles and a faint hint of wood spice. The wine hits the palate with the profound elegance and purity that have become so much a characteristic under Wilmers and Sanders. Still youthful, with good acidity and freshness, this brilliant, medium-bodied 2011 needs another 4–5 years of bottle age, and should evolve effortlessly for 20–25 years.

Packed with dense tannins and firm fruit, this is a big, powerful wine. It is initially austere, but with time it becomes more rounded, with layers of wood tannins and rich fruit.

Shows a grippy feel, with lots of briar, pastis and plum sauce notes rolled together and driving through the sappy finish. Well-embedded acidity pushes everything along, while a pure echo of fruit hangs through the finish. Should blossom with cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2028.

Winemaker's Notes:

Again in 2011 Château Haut-Bailly produced another outstanding wine. This “Pessac-Léognan” is referred to as the 3rd red wine of Château Haut-Bailly which is known for their Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Pessac Leognan is in Graves, Bordeaux, and the area is known for earthy Bordeaux reds that are very elegant in style; which is exemplified in this 2011 Pessac Leognan de Chateau Haut-Bailly. It is already approachable, showing rich flavors of dark berries and fine texture typical of Haut-Bailly. Proprietor Robert Wilmers and general manager/winemaker Veronique Sanders have done an extraordinary job at this estate, which has now become one of the superstars of Bordeaux as recent vintages have admirably demonstrated.
