Château Haut-Bailly Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

$57.99

The 2014 Haut Bailly is exceptionally polished, creamy and textured from the very first taste. Black cherries, plums, smoke, tobacco and incense meld together in an ample, voluptuous wine built on pure texture. The high percentage of Merlot gives the 2014 relatively soft contours to balance the pure intensity of the Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a remarkably balanced, polished, young Haut-Bailly.

Beautifully textured, with a savory - first personality centered around tobacco, olives and graphite, with a macerated cherry core. Layered and harmonious. Stupid value at < €20

Delicious once it had a chance to open up. Took two hours or so. Cherry and smoke and a touch of leather through the finish. It feels classy. Texturally just so appealing. The 2014 Haut Bailly is a treat.

The 2014 Haut-Bailly has a sophisticated bouquet with cedar and gravel-infused red berry fruit, gaining intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite supple tannins that manage to form a firm frame that should see this repay cellaring. There is plenty of attractive, lightly spice red and black fruit, segueing into clove and black olive notes towards the finish. Excellent. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

All 17 wines tasted and scored blind, of course this surprised many and came out on top in more than one list.

I love this property but this wine is closed and not showing well tonight. Perhaps, a dumb phase. I know this wine will shine in years to come. They're simply better producers than this is showing. Simply blackberries and dark cherries.
