The first of 4 Grand Crus from Morey Saint Denis. Tasted blind - knew the identities but not the order of service. Colour of mid Ruby - paler than the previous bracket from Gevrey Chambertin. A beautiful red fruited delicious palate easily of Grand Cru quality. Medium plus intensity with supple tannins even at this young age. — 4 months ago

Used a Corvin 3X over 6 months, still fresh, great product. Second wine of Chateau Haut-Bailly, a blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cab Sauv & 10% Cab Franc, deep Ruby with aromas of black fruits, cassis and flinty notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, red currants and juicy blueberry with cedar notes and baking spice. Firm tannins, medium acidity ending tangy with fruit and mineral finish. Very Nice! — 6 months ago

2014 vintage. Pale golden hue. Lemon curd, lemon rind, honey suckle, perfumed. Fairly complex. On the palate, medium plus acidity, medium plus alcohol and medium body. There's some nice concentration and decent length here, with a honeyed, nutty finish. Not bad at all. Drink now until 2026+. — 4 years ago
