This has been the second label since 1967. It has seen 15% new oak, for the same length of time as the grand vin. Nice gravelly fruit on nose. The assemblage is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc. Appealing substance. Fresh and quite classic, elegant, a well-honed style. Good tannins, soft and appropriate. Fresh and very drinkable, although with a little grip alongside the freshness found in the finish. Drinking range: 2010 - 2015 Rating: 15.5/20 Chris Kissack, (Nov 2010)

Colourful, dense Cabernets Sauvignons and wonderfully soft Merlots give this La Parde de Haut- Bailly 2007 a harmonious structure. An enjoyable wine with generous red fruit. The silky, luscious tannins should make it very pleasant to drink from 2010.Winemaker's notes (Oct 2010)

Château Haut Bailly

The now very reliable Pessac-Léognan estate of Haut Bailly was revived after its purchase by Belgian Daniel Sanders. He'd married into the Bordeaux wine trade in 1919, and formed a determination to buy Haut Bailly after tasting their awesome 1945. There was much work to do upon buying the estate, some of the vines were still ungrafted for instance, and the renovation was still not complete by the time Daniel's son took over in 1979. Véronique Sanders represents the latest generation to run the estate, albeit under the benign ownership of American Robert Wilmers who bought Haut Bailly in 1998 bringing more much needed investment, the fruits of which can be seen in the high quality of today's wines. The vineyards are planted to a fairly typical "Left Bank" mix of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc.
