Chateau Haut-Bailly Pessac-Leognan
Chateau Haut-Bailly Pessac-Leognan has a 74-acre vineyard that is at the heart of the Graves region on the left bank of the Garonne River. Weather brought ideal conditions. Moderate heat through the season turned to hot dry weather through September, enabling full ripeness and abundant vine productivity.
This red blend is a masculine style that sits on a frame of black currant, cherry and blackberry with ribbons of silky tannins running through it. Nicely balanced; finishes long with a nice crescendo of cedar and licorice. Drink now or cellar for another 10 years.
