64% cabernet sauvignon 30% merlot and 6% cabernet franc aged for 16 months in 50-65% new barrels. Situated on a 30 hectare plot its unique gravelly sand soils sit on fossil-rich subsoil. The 2011 vintage is a medium bright red. Soft pure and very fragrant on the nose a hallmark of Haut-Bailly this has aromas of tar and blackberry liqueur. With a soft entry this is ripe and pure on the palate with intense blue fruit flavors before yielding to some firm tannins. Though this will take some time to come together it also has one of the longest unhurried finishes of any 2011 Pessac. Owned by American Robert Wilmers since 1998 Chateau Haut-Bailly has seen a tremendous resurgence in quality. Well done. Tasted twice. Enjoy 2016-2026. Cory Gowan.

42.1% sauvignon blanc, 57.9% semillon. Aged in 47% new oak. Lemon yellow color with green hints. Bright citrus notes dominate backed up by gooseberry and beeswax.

Very polished, with an alluring incense and licorice edge to the core of supple black cherry, anise and plum sauce flavors. Suave black tea and tar hints chime on the finish, but this stays open-knit and rounded. Drink now through 2018 Wine Spectator.

Attractive spicy nose with coffee and chocolate. Some juniper and black pepper. Blueberries and dark cherries. Vibrant and smooth on the palate with good fruit and fine soft tannins.

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.
