Chateau Haut-Bailly 2009 comes from a truly great Bordeaux vintage and was rated a perfect 100 points by Robert Parker.

Proprietor Robert Wilmers and general manager/winemaker Veronique Sanders have done an extraordinary job at Haut-Bailly, which has become one of the superstars of the Graves. And many consider the wines of Haut-Bailly to now be on a par with some of the great growths of the Medoc, but with a much smaller price tag.

“…a tour de force in winemaking…goes from strength to strength, and it is not surprising that it is now one of the perfect wines of this great, great vintage – the finest vintage of Bordeaux that I have tasted in 37 year.

“ opaque ruby/purple color, an extraordinary nose of high-quality unsmoked cigar tobacco, graphite, blackcurrants and spice, hits the palate with a medium to full-bodied, saturated and rich mouthfeel, but an elegant and ethereal quality that is difficult to articulate. It is rich, complex and tastes as if it were the vinous equivalent of a remarkable haute couture creation from the late Coco Chanel. It is full-bodied yet elegant, powerful yet delicate, and remarkably velvety-textured, sumptuous and loaded with upside potential. Kudos to Haut-Bailly!” Robert Parker
