Château Haut-Bailly 2017 – Pessac-Léognan, Grand Cru Classé

The nose is elegant, fine, racy and offers a very beautiful definition, a beautiful precision as well as richness (but with a very beautiful finesse). It reveals notes of fleshy strawberry, blackberry and small notes of crushed cassis combined with fine touches of blueberry, Bourbon vanilla, toasted, graphite and discreet hints of nutmeg, chocolate and spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, elegant, racy and offers juiciness, an acidulous frame, tension, precision, a fine suavity, a beautiful finesse of structure, power as well as a very beautiful finesse of the fat. On the palate this wine expresses notes of Boysenberry, graphite / Graves (racy minerality), cassis, raspberry and small notes of cherry associated with a discreet touch of juicy / crunchy blueberry as well as toasted hints, vanilla, nutmeg and spices. Tannins are elegant and structuring. Good length.
