Haut Bailly 2010: Top value from legendary vintage

Dear Wine Lover,


I spotted a really interesting opportunity which I thought to share with you. Haut Bailly 2010 scored 98 Parker, 98 Suckling and 19 points by Renè Gabriel is one of the best deals of the legendary 2010 Bordeaux vintage, and selling at CHF 140.00 + Vat it is still a real bargain. Consider that its 2009 vintage is selling at CHF 245.00 + today, therefore 2010 is available at almost half price. Further it has the same quality and Parker score as wines such as Ausone (CHF 1’200.00 + Vat), Lafite 2010 (CHF 875.00 + Vat) or Palmer 2010 (CHF 330.00 + Vat) making it even more clear how amazing this opportunity is. Haut Bailly quality has been outstanding in the last vintages and it is by now one of the most consistent Chateaux from Bordeaux. Furthermore it is always very fairly priced compared to the quality it delivers, and 2010 is definitely the best example for this.


I’m offering this to you because you are most probably missing this beauty in your cellar. I would also have some by now ultra-rare big formats:


75.0 cl Château Haut Bailly - Graves, Pessac-Léognan - 2010 CHF 140.00 (CHF 151.20 Vat incl)

For 36 bottles CHF 135.00 (CHF 145.80 Vat incl.)

Half bottles available at CHF 95.00 (CHF 102.60 Vat incl)

Magnums available at CHF 380.00 (CHF 410.40 Vat incl)

Double Magnums available at CHF 900.00 (CHF 972.00 Vat incl)

Jeroboams available at CHF 1'500.00 (CHF 1’620.00 Vat incl)

Imperials available at 2010 CHF 1'900.00 (CHF 2’052.00 Vat incl)

Robert Parker 98 Points: Deep plum/purple, Haut-Bailly’s 2010 required some coaxing to appreciate its subtle notes of barbecue smoke, lead pencil shavings and creme de cassis as well as its touches of pomegranate and forest floor. The oak is pushed far into the background and the tannins are extremely silky, but the intensity of the wine is profound and the finish lingers for close to 55 seconds. This wine is ripe yet delicate, powerful yet stylish, and essentially resembles a remarkable fashion design from a house of haute couture. This wine needs a good 7-8 years of bottle age and should keep for 40-50+ years. This quintessential example of pure finesse, elegance, harmony and delicacy is combined into a wine that lingers intensely with near-perfect poise and character. Haut-Bailly’s ethereal character is virtually unmatched in Bordeaux. Normally, general manager/winemaker Veronique Sanders fashions a blend that approximates 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. That was the exact blend of her 2009, and I doubt the 2010 deviates significantly from that.
René Gabriel 19 Points: Dichtes Purpur mit schwarzem und violettem Schimmer. Nobles Bouquet von reifen, fast cremigem Cabernet in der Nase geprägt, Veilchen und Cassis, florales Parfüm im Innern aufweisend, tolle Tabakterroirürze. Komplexer Gaumen, extrem dicht und doch schon angenehm stoffig, auch hier Tabak und sogar Trüffel im Untergrund zeigend. Ein sehr tief schürfender Haut-Bailly mit Charakter und enormem Potential für garantierte 50 Jahre. Mit dem Handicap, dass die ersten 10 Jahre gar nichts läuft! Insgesamt drei Mal verkostet. (19/20). 12: Dunkles Granat, satt in der Mitte, rubiner Rand. Royales Bouquet, bereits das Nasenbild strahlt eine unglaubliche Vielschichtigkeit aus, Trüffel, schwarzbeerige Konturen, Teer, Pumpernickelbrot, Lakritze, man kann sich nicht satt riechen an diesem jungen, viel versprechenden, perfekten Bordeaux-Nasenbild. Im Gaumen königliche Adstringenz, umfassende Aromatik, wieder im schwarzbeerigen Bereich, erhabenes, langes Finale. Hier wähnt man sich in den ganz grossen, alten Zeiten dieses Weingutes. Vor fast 100 Jahren war Haut-Bailly genau gleich teuer wie Haut Brion. Und dahin kommt dieser absolut geniale 2010er auch. Bei der Qualität - nicht beim Preis! Das war klar der beste Wein im überfüllten Saal.
James Suckling 98 Points: Great aromas of crushed blackberries with flowers and stones that follow through to a full body, with super silky tannins and a long, long finish. It fills your mouth with beautiful fruit and velvety tannins yet shows tension and form. This lasts for minutes on the palate. Structured and superb. Don't touch until 2020.
