Haut-Bailly II 2020
Haut-Bailly II 2020
Jane Anson Decanter 92 – "Inky colour, pencil lead and smoke concentration, where the tannins lend a sense of pressure bearing down on the fruit, keeping things moving and building in tension through the palate. Tiny edge of peony and iris flower as it opens in the glass. Harvest September 9 to 25th. Extremely well extracted, this is not a delicate wine but it is a measured one, and it has the sense of slowly building towards the close of play that is most enjoyable. 30% of overall production in HBII this year. Not vinified in the cellar, but will be aged in it."
Neal Martin Vinous 91-93 – "The 2020 Haut-Bailly II was picked September 9–25. It offers a mélange of red and black fruit on the nose, hints of morels/undergrowth lending complexity, then becoming more floral with aeration, all quite mercurial in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit that gently grips. Very marine in style, shucked oyster shells infusing the sappy finish, which leaves an impressively long aftertaste considering this is the Deuxième Vin. Excellent."
James Lawther Jancis Robinson 16,5+ – "More of a Cabernet aspect (despite the blend) with its intense, crimson-purple colour and dark-fruit and cassis notes. Tight, firm and structured, the fine-grained tannins present but matched by freshness and fruit. Big structure, certainly for a second wine. Definite ageing potential."
Chris Kissack Winedoctor 91-93 – "The second wine of Haut-Bailly is a blend of 54% Merlot and 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, picked between September 9th and the 25th. The most immediately striking feature of this wine is the colour, an incredibly rich violet-black hue, with a moderate density to it as well. The nose is quite charming, presenting the obvious dark and concentrated fruits of the vintage, in the shape of damson and currant, with a fragrant overlay of crushed chalk, white freesia and white peach, as well as a little grain of new oak. The palate starts off in an elegant fashion, medium-bodied as per the vintage, with a fresh stance and an elegantly refrained frame of tannins and powdery oak, which lend a delicate grip to the finish. This is a second wine full of potential, which with that restrained structure should be good to go in just a few years."
