"Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Year-On tasting, the 2007 Haut Bailly has a beautiful, quintessential Pessac bouquet with touches of warm gravel filtering through the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive, tightly knit black fruit laced with cedar and white pepper. There is superb weight in this 2007 considering the vintage, doling out fine mineralit on the persistent finish. Very fine, but I would actually wait another couple of years before broaching." -Neal Martin
"Diffuse bouquet already on the nose - low key but intriguing. A hint of oak - definitely not speciously sweet. Quite succulent fruit but a very dry finish. Confident even if not especially concentrated"
"Deep ruby. Coconut oak nose. Savoury, mineral fruit, with good intensity of flavour. Good persistence. Very nice, well handled. Mid-term."
