Chateau Haut-Bailly is situated on the left bank of the River Garonne, south of Bordeaux  in the commune of  Pessac-Léognan –  home to all the Graves Crus Classés. A vineyard with 30 hectares (74 acres) of planted vines on one piece of  land, it sits on a high ridge overlooking a small winding road leading from Leognan to Cadaujac. The sloping terrain is well-graded and has excellent drainage. If great wine results from a harmonious relationship between man, the vine, and nature – a concept the French call terroir – the most subtle of these three elements is the soil. At Haut-Bailly, it is sandy, mixed with gravel, and rests on a subsoil of sandstone petrified with the remains of prehistoric fossil shells. All this contributes to the special character of Haut-Bailly wine. Read less

Still a baby- dark purple with no browning. Tobacco and dark red fruits on the nose- the palate is completely primary, very rich and full, but not without elegance- very nice wine.

I don't remember the '88 La Mission as being so wonderfully opulent. It shows fabulous violet, berry and dried fruit aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, ripe and delicious aftertaste.--1988 Bordeaux horizontal. Best... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1988 Mission Haut Brion, La 3000ml

Ferociously hard from cask, the 1988 La Mission is now exhibiting an attractive opulence and gobs of fruit. It has turned out to be a beautifully made, deep, full-bodied, concentrated, rich, well-structured wine that will last for 15-20 years. It is a bigger, deeper, yet softer, more concentrated wine than its neighbor, Haut-Brion. Anticipated maturity: 1994-2012.

What a beautiful and complete wine with dark chocolate crushed blackberry cedar and raspberry on the nose. Full-bodied with supersilky tannins and a beautiful licorice tar and fruit aftertaste. Long and complex. Will improve with age but delicious now.- 88/ 98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Wine Spectator.
