For over four centuries, Château Haut-Bailly has overlooked a 30 hectare vineyard in a single block. The soil consists of sand and gravel from the Quaternary Period and the subsoil has a high proportion of fossils (shell marl). Haut-Bailly's reputation as one of the great wines of Bordeaux dates from the 19th century, and the word "outstanding" most often associated with the château reflects its superb quality. Robert G. Wilmers, owner since 1998, and the current manager, Véronique Sanders, have very demanding standards that entail using the best of traditional and modern methods, with full respect for the environment. A quarter of the vines at Haut-Bailly are a hundred years old, and the estate has a unique terroir that accounts for wines of amazing regularity. These great wines have an inimitable style, finesse, and elegance, whatever the vintage.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep plum/purple, Haut-Bailly's 2010 required some coaxing to appreciate its subtle notes of barbecue smoke, lead pencil shavings and creme de cassis as well as its touches of pomegranate and forest floor. The oak is pushed far into the background and the tannins are extremely silky, but the intensity of the wine is profound and the finish lingers for close to 55 seconds. This wine is ripe yet delicate, powerful yet stylish, and essentially resembles a remarkable fashion design from a house of haute couture. This wine needs a good 7-8 years of bottle age and should keep for 40-50+ years.
