The 2014 Haut-Bailly has a sophisticated bouquet with cedar and gravel-infused red berry fruit, gaining intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite supple tannins that manage to form a firm frame that should see this repay cellaring. There is plenty of attractive, lightly spice red and black fruit, segueing into clove and black olive notes towards the finish. Excellent. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

All 17 wines tasted and scored blind, of course this surprised many and came out on top in more than one list.

I love this property but this wine is closed and not showing well tonight. Perhaps, a dumb phase. I know this wine will shine in years to come. They're simply better producers than this is showing. Simply blackberries and dark cherries.
