2015 La Parde de Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

SKU #1372242 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark (Barrel sample.) This wine has a fine, dense texture that is impressive with its smooth velvet character. The tannins are dark, solid and show a dry side to balance the beautiful juicy fruit. Although this is a second wine, it does have the structure of a wine more senior than that. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2016)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Pure fruit here in a reserved and focused presentation with just a hint of dried roses. Full body, integrated tannins and a fresh, tangy finish. Shows focus and brightness. Second wine of Château Haut-Bailly. Needs two or three years to soften. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 La Parde de Haut-Bailly is laced with the essence of black cherry, plum, licorice, menthol and grilled herbs. Supple and inviting, the 2015 will drink well upon release, but this deceptively midweight second wine from Haut-Bailly also has more than enough structure to age well for a number of years. The blend is 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This wine needs some time in the glass to fully open, but after a few moments the depth of the fruit starts to unfurl. It's Merlot dominant, but the Merlots at Haut Bailly in the big years have the power of Cabernet, and they are old vines planted at a density of 10,000 per hectare, which helps to slow down the ripening process. It has a beautifully juicy finish. (JA) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Solid, with bramble-edged grip and good drive to the mix of plum, red currant and raspberry coulis flavors, lined with a bright iron streak and backed by a racy savory edge on the finish. (JM, Web Only-2018) Inner quote mark

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 La Parde de Haut-Bailly has quite a high-toned bouquet with blueberry and cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, a hint of graphite with ample blackberry and blueberry. This is a structured La Parde de Haut-Bailly, grippy and slightly chalky with a precise finish. This comes recommended. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2016)
