"Groot aandeel oude stokken zorgt voor immense concentratie"

Château Haut-Bailly is één van de oudste estates van de regio. Uit archieven blijkt dat hier al vanaf de 14e eeuw wijn wordt verbouwd. Het huidige château-gebouw dateert van de 19e eeuw. En als we het over historie en leeftijd hebben, pakt Haut-Bailly een record voor wat betreft de aanplant: het beschikt namelijk over de oudste wijnstokken van de appellation. Meer dan een kwart van de stokken heeft de eerbiedwaardige leeftijd van 100 à 120 jaar! Of men er ooit aan heeft gedacht een exclusieve cuvée te maken van de druiven van deze vieilles vignes? Het stellige antwoord is ‘nee’. If we did that, we would take out the heart of Haut-Bailly.’

Huidige eigenaar is de familie Wilmers (sinds 1998). Wijlen Robert Wilmers stelde direct de befaamde Denis Dubourdieu als consulting oenologue aan. En hij gaf niemand minder dan terroir-specialist Kees van Leeuwen en Sovivin’s (‘L’expertise du Sol au Vin’) David Pernet de opdracht om bodemstudies uit te voeren onder meer om vast te stellen welk druivenras waar het beste gedijt. De aanplant is momenteel ca 65% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot en 5% cabernet franc.

De jaargang 2022 kan zo maar de ‘best ever’ vintage zijn van het château. Neal Martin geeft Haut-Bailly dezelfde score als Haut-Brion (de enige Grand Cru Classé 1855 uit Pessac en nog wel één van de slechts vijf 1e GCCs van die classificatie).
Ook criticus Jeb Dunnuck is laaiend enthousiast: Haut-Bailly 2022 behoort tot zijn TOP 10 beste wijnen van Bordeaux 2022 en scoort met (98-100)/100 beter dan Haut Brion.

Incredible complexity of aromas here with ripe currants and blackberries, but also dried flowers like violets and roses. Then there’s forest flower character such as bark, mushroom and sandalwood. Black truffles. Full-bodied with tight and chewy tannins that are polished and pure, with a solid and tight finish. It builds on your palate and frames the wine beautifully. 56% cabernet sauvignon, 37% merlot, 5% petit verdot and 2% cabernet franc.

The 2022 Haut-Bailly offers up aromas of dark berries complemented by accents of iris, lilac, rose petals, graphite and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, dense and concentrated, dense, it's layered and textural, with a deep core of fruit, powdery tannins and a penetrating, saline finish. Vinified along traditional lines, it is a structured wine that will take some time to hit its stride, but at this early stage it appears suppler and more seamless than its 2020 and 2019 predecessors. A blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc from grapes picked from September 7 to 27, it's maturing half in new barriques and half in one- or two-year-old barrels.

The 2022 Château Haut-Bailly is going to be one of the legendary vintages at this château, and it should be a no-brainer purchase for readers. Based on 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, it has an incredible perfume of cassis, ripe black cherries, crushed stone, smoke tobacco, and wood smoke. Earning more than a few expletives in my notes, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a deep, layered, multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and ultra-fine, silky tannins. Hold onto your hats, ladies and gentlemen, this is an incredible wine in the making!

The 2022 Haut-Bailly was picked between 7 and 27 September and underwent a four-week cuvaison, taking longer to consume the sugar and was matured in 50% new oak. It has a bouquet that compels you just to sit and contemplate. It gradually unfolds with blackberry, raspberry, potpourri and iris flower scents, well-defined, not showy but suave. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannins. Minerals, black pepper and clove off a gentle grip with an impressive crescendo. It will need a decade in bottle.
This Haut-Bailly has a haunting beauty, the kind of wine that will bring people to tears!

Initially, you find a display of flowers before moving on to all of its cigar wrapper, spice, blackberry, currant, black cherry, smoke, and hints of forest leaf in the perfume. Deeply concentrated, vibrant, and refined, the palate is packed with multiple-layers of perfectly, ripe, red fruits, a fabulous sense of purity, silky, soft, polished tannins, and ample lift in the finish, providing the backdrop to age, and evolve for decades. The wine blends 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Petit Verdot. 14.5% ABV, pH 3.92. Picking took place September 7 - September 27. The yields were only 30 hectoliters per hectare.
This is in serious contention as the best vintage ever produced at Haut Bailly

Dicht verwobenes Bouquet, sublime Art, feingliedrig, rotbeerige Konturen, verführerisches Irisparfüm, schwarze Pfefferkörner, dunkle Mineralik und Lakritze. Am sublimen Gaumen mit seidiger Textur, kakaoartigem Tanningerüst, balancierter Rasse, salzigem Extrakt und perfekt geformtem Körper. Im konzentrierten, langanhaltenden Finale schwarzbeerige Konturen, Koriander, Eisenkraut und erhabene Adstringenz. Ein pures Finessenpaket mit hohem Lagerpotenzial.
WOW – das ist der beste Wein aus Léognan. 

Deep dark ruby in colour with an opaque core, purple reflections, and subtle brightening on the rim. On the nose, an inviting bouquet with finely nuanced cherry and plum, underpinned by sweet cassis, with subtle fine oak and tobacco nuances. The taut, complex palate has a mineral core with black wild berry fruit notes, it appears very concentrated and tight-knit, possessing an impressive freshness without any trace of opulence, with fine herbal spices and saline notes evident on the lengthy finish.

A blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Haut-Bailly is deep garnet-purple in color. It needs a fair bit of swirling to bring out fragrant notes of kirsch, warm cassis, black raspberries, and underbrush, followed by hints of star anise, peonies, graphite, and wood smoke. The full-bodied palate is densely laden with ripe, expressive black fruit and earthy accents, framed by firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and minerally.

Fragranced nose, purple fruits, blackcurrants, juniper, liquorice, crushed stones, salt, violets, roses, dark chocolate and cherries - perfumed, alive and expressive. Smooth, but generous with crunchy fruit and salty touches that come in and coat the super fine tannins with a powdery sensation that really fills the mouth. Nice terroir aspects, smooth, well textured and elegantly weighted. Gives dark fruit, subtle savoury tones with dark chocolate and herbal aspects giving nuance. Excellent length and freshness, it's graceful but almost a bit light in terms of fruit density and plushness - although the tannins are exceptional, really so sleek and silky with definition and detail. Feels well worked, gentle, confident and shiny. It's missing a touch more excitement and juicy liveliness but it’s extremely finessed and you can't fault the attention to detail of the tannins and the moreish quality they give. Great potential. 3.92pH. 2% Cabernet Franc completes the blend. A yield of 30hl/ha. Consultants Christophe Olivier and Axel Marchal.

Refined bouquet with cassis, mineral and liquorice notes to the fore. Velvety texture, the plentiful tannins rounded and smooth. Rich and moelleux on the mid palate. Crunchy tannins on the finish that lend a little freshness. Warm. A mix of gourmandise and power
