Haut-Bailly is a classically styled Pessac-Leognan whichalways needs lots of time to show at its best, and Uncle Bob P. last tasted this way back in 1991, so he has missed out!

Here are the latest Cellartracker notes:

CRIBBS @ La T (La Trompette, London): Very 78 Graves on the nose. Brett’s padron peppers with a touch of lamb fat across the nose with warm gravelly cedar and tobacco providing the more bass notes. A nice vintage freshness to this. This is a step up from a bottle at the Medlar a couple of years ago. ****

1993 Tollot Beau Corton Bressandes vs, 1990 Louis Latour Corton Grancey, our host exchanged some of our Burgundy for this Bordeaux which was a lovely treat, nose of Opus X/Forbidden X, cigar box, allspice, and ripe black currants and black cherry, same on the palate, almost too much cigar box for some but not for me, big body, very tasty, what a gorgeous wine, and a long, flavorful finish.

My 39th Birthday: Slow ox’d for three hours. Decanted just before serving. Very savoury with earth, tobacco, and stones. The earthiness was especially apparent on the palate, mixing with the dark red fruit that still remained strong.
