Tasting Notes

The 2015 La Parde de Haut-Bailly has a very classic cedar and tobacco-tinged bouquet that is almost the opposite to how precociously it showed in barrel. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a crisp line of acidity, nicely structured with good density toward the finish. There is still a little chalkiness and it is spicier than I remember, but it remains a very impressive deuxième vin.

Score: 90

The 2015 La Parde de Haut-Bailly has quite a high-toned bouquet with blueberry and cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, a hint of graphite with ample blackberry and blueberry. This is a structured La Parde de Haut-Bailly, grippy and slightly chalky with a precise finish. This comes recommended.

Score: 88 - 90

Pure fruit here in a reserved and focused presentation with just a hint of dried roses. Full body, integrated tannins and a fresh, tangy finish. Shows focus and brightness. Second wine of Château Haut-Bailly. Needs two or three years to soften. Try in 2021.

Score: 93

Very minerally and salty with lots of dried fruit, currant and floral aromas and flavors. Full body, silky tannins and a fresh finish. Excellent second wine.

Score: 92 - 93

A voluptuous, dark wine, the 2015 La Parde de Haut-Bailly offers notable depth. Black cherry, plum, graphite, leather and dark spices are all fused together. In 2015, La Parde is especially dense and inviting, which makes it a very serious second wine. The blend is 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc.

Score: 89 - 92
