2014 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

SKU #1308786 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Haut-Bailly has turned out beautifully. Dark, sumptuous and expressive, the 2014 exudes depth and finesse. Ample and resonant on the palate, with striking depth, the 2014 possesses exceptional balance and class. Hints of smoke, tobacco and licorice infuse the deep, creamy finish. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2017)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very well-made, modern wine with ripe cherry and cassis notes but rather discrete oak. The bright fruit and lively acidity balance the moderately dry tannins very well, and the finish is long and quite complex. Compacted. Needs time to open. Beautiful. Inner quote mark (2/2017)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Initial tight acidity in this crisp wine gives way to smooth rich black fruits. This already has a fine balance with its ripe juiciness and delicious redberry flavors. It is going to develop into a very fine wine. Drink from 2024. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2014 Château Haut Bailly is a beauty and shows the best of the vintage in its charming, forward, complex bouquet of black cherries, kirsch, dried flowers, and black raspberries, with just a hint of building earthy minerality and tobacco. Pure silk on the palate, with medium to full body, ripe, present tannins, and a great mid-palate, it’s a rock star 2014 to enjoy over the coming two decades or so. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Haut Bailly has a charming, quite intense bouquet with layers of blackberry, raspberry coulis, black olive and melted tar scents that soar from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity, harmonious and focused with superb density and precision towards the finish. This is a classy number and alongside Domaine de Chevalier, it is one of the standouts from the appellation in this vintage. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This shows admirable density for the vintage, with a strong loamy echo amid the core of dark currant, fig and plum compote flavors. Loads of tobacco and tar details join in on the finish, while the fruit easily keeps pace. Rock-solid. Best from 2020 through 2035. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Rich and substantial but racier than the old Haut-Bailly style. Really very well mastered. Good balance without excess acidity or tannin. Very persistent. The concentration was presumably helped enormously by the saignée that produced the Rosé. Just a little stolid but a very impressive 2014. (JR) 17.5+/20 points Inner quote mark (3/2015)

A very enticing nose of blood oranges, tobacco, forest floor and a touch of vanilla. Very fine tannins on the palate making it all round and balanced. Very nice wine. I expect it to receive high scores for sure. 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot.

Veronique Sanders can do no wrong at Haut Bailly and this property is a star in Bordeaux. A very well-made wine with ripe cherry and cassis notes. Bright fruit and lively acidity balance the tannins very well, and the finish is long and quite complex. One of the truly great 2014s.

This is elegant and complex with touches of earth and tobacco, plenty of sleek dark fruit and very classy lines. Intense, bubbling with potential and in need of a few years in bottle or a few hours in decanter; this is a fantastic wine.
