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 years ago
As always with Miani, an extraordinary show, well beyond Grand Cru quality. Developing complexity, balanced and a long finish. Dense and broad, with a sharp en linear structure with its trademark electric and salty minerality on the mid palate. The wine provides such a drinking experience today, but with the structure and intensity that’s provided, I can only imagine that this will have a long life ahead...and I will keep wondering if this man have a limit on what’s possible.. — 6 years 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! — 4 years ago
