En Primeur Château Haut Bailly II, Pessac Léognan will be available for delivery once landed, usually two years following the vintage.
Renowned as one of the world’s most elegant wines, the character of Château Haut-Bailly is a series of unlikely paradoxes. It is as complex as it is balanced: deliberate and discrete, powerful and gentle, immediate and timeless. Second wine Haut-Bailly II is a great introduction to the estate.
The 2019 Haut-Bailly II is a very serious second wine. Big, potent tannis give the 2019 much of its somber, brooding personality. Black cherry, graphite, licorice, cloves and new leather infuse the 2019 with tremendous complexity. Readers should be prepared to cellar the 2019 for at least a few years. If this tasting is any indication, it is a real powerhouse with quite a bit of cellaring potential. – 92-94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
This is an absolutely delightful second label that comes highly recommended. – 91-93 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous
