Average critic rating : 88.5 points



The selection process has become much more draconian, as evidenced by the second wine, the 2011 La Parde De Haut-Bailly. A blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, it offers a dark ruby/plum color, delicious red and black currant fruit intermixed with spice box and subtle wood notes, beautiful purity, and a quality that transcends some of the Haut-Baillys made in the sixties and seventies. A brilliant second wine as well as a sleeper of the vintage, it is supple enough to be drunk in 2-3 years or cellared for 10-15+. ||Ever since the acquisition of Haut-Bailly by American banker Robert Wilmers, he and his winemaker Veronique Sanders have dramatically led this estate to the top of the qualitative pyramid. Wine Advocate.April, 2014



The La Parde de Haut-Bailly represents 40% of the crop and is a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon (Merlot more than usual as the yields were higher.) It has a very fine, quite minerally bouquet with good delineation, a hint of chalk and graphite in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannins, a little brusque and structured although that will soften by the time of bottling. The finish shows more fleshiness and it has good length. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com
