Château Haut-Bailly 2016 – Pessac-Léognan – Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, elegant, powerful, straight and offers concentration (full of finesse, very well-balanced). It reveals notes of boysenberry, wild flowers and slight hints of raspberry, crushed strawberry associated with a discreet hint of dark chocolate, oak as well as very discreet hints of black pepper and slight hints of racy minerality (terroir). Beautiful elegance and power ! The palate is fine, silky, elegant, net/precise, well-balanced and offers a nice straightness, tension as well as tension and concentration (but full of finesse). In the mouth this wine expresses notes of crushed blackberry, cassis and strawberry associated with slight hints of dark chocolate, grilled oak and a very discreet hint of coffee. Tannins are elegant and creamy. Beautiful persistence ! Very nice potential !
