This vintage blessed from on high would benefit from several years ageing to reach its customary smoothness, but do not be afraid to taste it earlier if temptation beckons! Superb! Serve with a fine rib of beef grilled over vine cuttings.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A classic effort, the 2000 Haut-Bailly exhibits notes of lead pencil shavings, raspberries, black currants, and loamy soil. Subtle hints of earth and smoke are also present in this medium-bodied, stylish, well-balanced, pure wine that emphasizes restraint and graciousness over power and blockbuster intensity. It has entered its plateau of maturity, where it should remain for another fifteen years.
