Tasting Notes Haut Bailly 2008

96

A candidate for the -wine of the vintage,- the 2008 Haut-Bailly possesses incredible complexity. Tell-tale notes of lead pencil shavings, charcoal, damp earth, black cherries and black currants intermixed with a hint of subtle barbecue smoke are present in this classic, quintessential Graves. Medium-bodied with an emerging, precocious complexity, it is a super-pure, beautifully textured, long wine that can be drunk now or cellared for 20-25 years. Bravo!

Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. Initially, the Haut-Bailly 2008 lacks a little intensity on the nose, especially after the previous wine. But it is well defined with fine minerality coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, a little hardness with a slightly abrasive, masculine finish that should mellow with age. Impressive. Tasted January 2012.

Wonderful nose of decadent fruit and chocolate, with hints of meat and flowers. Full bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a spicy, silky and long finish. Tight now, but so fine and dense. Give it four to five years of bottle age. So lovely. Best after 2013.
