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 :
The saturated ruby/purple-hued 2011 Haut-Bailly exhibits a glorious, subtle, noble set of aromatics consisting of red and black currants, sweet cherries, graphite, truffles and a faint hint of wood spice. The wine hits the palate with the profound elegance and purity that have become so much a characteristic under Wilmers and Sanders. Still youthful, with good acidity and freshness, this brilliant, medium-bodied 2011 needs another 4-5 years of bottle age, and should evolve effortlessly for 20-25 years.
