2004 Château Haut-Bailly Pessac-Léognan

Château Haut-Bailly’s 74-acre vineyard 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.

Rating: Excellent (92) | $93 | 13.5% ABV

    I love love love this wine. Recently had the ’02 which was absolutely awesome.

    This is one of my favorites from the Pessac-Léognan appellation in Bordeaux. For years, I could not afford it, so I opted for their second label, Le Parde de Haut-Bailly. I thought I would pass the information along so that others could enjoy a good wine at a reasonable price.
