Why We're Buying
Château Haut-Bailly offers wine investors and connoisseurs a series of paradoxes. It's intricate yet balanced, direct yet gentle, immediate yet timeless. The one-of-a-kind Bordeaux red blend is a must-have amongst serious collectors.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A candidate for the -wine of the vintage,- the 2008 Haut-Bailly possesses incredible complexity. Tell-tale notes of lead pencil shavings, charcoal, damp earth, black cherries and black currants intermixed with a hint of subtle barbecue smoke are present in this classic, quintessential Graves. Medium-bodied with an emerging, precocious complexity, it is a super-pure, beautifully textured, long wine that can be drunk now or cellared for 20-25 years. Bravo!
