Chateau Haut Bailly Grand Cru Classe 2016
"Château Haut-Bailly always seems to show a little more muscle and sheer fruity strength than the majority of its same-appellation mates, and, while it does once again in 2016, it shows a certain sense of reserve and leaves the indelible impression that it is far from revealing all that it has. It is solidly built stuff with the tannic grip of a claret that, in no uncertain terms, begs for age, and we would not be surprised if it has yet to fully open up even as it approaches its tenth birthday." - Connoisseurs' Guide

"From an always-impressive estate, this vintage is superb, offering big tannins plus but also generous black fruits and powerful ripeness. Dense and with a good structure for aging, the wine will develop slowly and will not be ready before 2026. "

"The 2016 Haut-Bailly is medium to deep garnet-purple in color. The nose opens with beautiful floral notes of violets and lavender accented with earthy notions and sparks of crushed rocks over a core of kirsch, cassis and wild blueberries. Full-bodied, rich and seductive, it has layer upon layer of red, black and blue fruits intermingled with earth and mineral hints leading to a very long, perfumed finish. "
95 points Wine Spectator
"This is energetic and grippy, with tar and melted licorice notes wrapped around a core of bramble, red currant paste and black cherry preserve flavors. The tarry edge reemerges on the finish, working with a singed apple wood element to give this solid drive through the finish. Best from 2023 through 2038."
98 points James Suckling
"Wonderful aromas of tobacco, sweet fruit and licorice follow through to a full body with ultra-fine tannins that caress every inch of your palate. Love the length and subtlety to this young wine. Gorgeous. Drink after 2024. "
