Chateau Haut Bailly Pessac Leognan 2018 99pts
2018 was a year of extremes. The excessive rainfall of winter and spring was followed by drought with a long sunny summer for more than four consecutive months ... rare and ideal! The resulting wines are full of color, dense, structured and expressive. Opulence and exceptional quality for a solar vintage.
Blend: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc
"Complex and expressive nose, offering red and dark fruit, spices and pepper with wood and mushroom undertones. Fresh mussel shell and a hint of ink, too. Full-bodied with a fine texture and great balance between the acidity and the controlled, tannic structure. Very long finish. Goes on and on. Tiny production, 21 hectoliters per hectare. Try after 2025." James Suckling
