2016 are wines that represent well their terroir with precision; articulate – expressing their commune. Tasting these en primeur two years ago, the wines of Palmer, Mouton, Leoville las Cases and Cos d'Estournel were singing full throated – to mention a few. This is the theme of 2016, in particular the Cabernet. Young Lynch Bages, Clerc Milon and Poyferre... I could go on.

The 2016 Haut-Bailly is medium to deep garnet-purple in color. The nose opens with beautiful floral notes of violets and lavender accented with earthy notions and sparks of crushed rocks over a core of kirsch, cassis and wild blueberries. Full-bodied, rich and seductive, it has layer upon layer of red, black and blue fruits intermingled with earth and mineral hints leading to a very long, perfumed finish.

98 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (Issue # Interim - Nov 2018)

A big, vertical wine, the 2016 Haut-Bailly explodes onto the palate with tremendous depth and intensity. Readers should be in no rush to drink the 2016, as it won't be close to ready to drink for at least a decade, and I say that as an eternal optimist. Black cherry, smoke, tobacco, cedar, gravel and incense add to the wine's decidedly somber personality.

97+ points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Jan 2019)
