TASTING NOTES

"This young wine shows such pinpoint precision with a full body, dense fruit and gorgeous intensity. Muscular yet toned and beautiful. It really builds on the finish. Very fine-grained. So long and beautiful. Sophisticated power. Oyster shell and iodine undertones. Traditional style yet with a modern interpretation. Savory." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2016 Haut-Bailly is a huge, powerful wine that explodes in all directions. Black cherry, smoke, tobacco, licorice, menthol, incense and gravel are all pushed forward, but it is the wine's volume and pure intensity that stand out most. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2016 is likely to be a slow-maturing wine, but even today the phenomenal finish is a marvel. The 2016 is a great Haut-Bailly in the making. It will reward several decades of cellaring." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Fine and perfumed, this smells exquisite, a subtle black fruit and mineral; perfectly balanced, supple, subtle, fresh, and particularly finely tannic; sweet, fresh, pure, complex, and racy to taste, a ripe black fruit of great delicacy with subtle underlying mineral aromas, and exceptional length across the palate. This has the best of 2016’s particularly fine, soft, caressing tannins, and great, gentle, perfumed length. Not a particularly “big” wine, but one of marked race and refinement and breed. A great Haut-Bailly." Michael Schuster, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 56

"Rather floral nose. Ripe and broad. Quite chewy and structured. Cool and pretty dry. Pretty chewy! Lots of dynamism." JancisRobinson.com
