Chateau Haut-Bailly Pessac-Léognan Grand Cru Classé De Graves 2006

Excl. tax

The 2006 vintage has very deep color, intense fruity character and an impressive tannic structure. The Merlot is smooth and the Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful.
Well-balanced, silky, and elegant. A great wine and a credit to its terroir.

Limited inventory


Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim:

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A superb success for the vintage, the 2006 exhibits a deep ruby/purple hue as well as a poised, classic bouquet of sweet black cherries, graphite, camphor, truffles, and a subtle hint of oak. Medium-bodied with a stunningly layered texture, impressive purity, and beautiful balance, this cuvee is haute couture in a glass. Although surprisingly approachable, it won’t hit its adolescent stage for 8-10 years, and will last for 25-30 years thereafter. Bravo! (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2009)


94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This 2006 proves again that Haut-Bailly makes wines that are built to last. You are firmly in the Left Bank register here, with silky texture and a sense of restraint to the closely knit black fruits, plus smoke and graphite undertones. Everything is precise, considered and balanced with subtle extraction. Drink now with carafing. (JA) Inner quote mark (6/2016)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark You need to think ahead here, because this wine is currently totally dominated by wood. The richness and classic, balanced structure that is normal with Haut-Bailly seems to have been put aside in favor of a highly polished, toast-laden style. Search for the fruit and there is blackberry,spice and fruit tannin. But it’s hard. Wait 10 years at least. Inner quote mark (3/2009)
