    July 2, 2022 - Garnet colour, very aromatic nose of eucalyptus, liquorice, orange sanguine… same aromas on the palate, tannins are very well integrated and smooth, acidity is here and gives a very good freshness ..very good fresh white pepper on the end palate!!
    Eaten with a magret de canard ( with pears).. very good pairing !
    Really a nice old bordeaux

    June 30, 2022 - This has good fruit. Some charcoal and a bit of scorched earth. Meet and game. Deep w char w plummy fruit and some spice. Savory with carob. Very good.

    April 24, 2022 - 48x 1990 (37x Bdx, 6x Napa, 5x others): From magnum. Dead, soy sauce, oxidative nose.

    October 16, 2021 - Superb wine, all you can expect from a beautiful bordeaux in a strong vintage.

    The smoky flavors reminded me of a bottle from the 1955 vintage that I tasted a couple of years ago. This makes me think that this wine has plateaued but should stay there for some more years. Worth seeking out (paid around 115 CHF for a bottle in a retail shop a couple of years ago, which is below the current release prices for this château).

    October 14, 2021 - I was most impressed by this Haut-Bailly, with its textbook exuberant gravelly Graves attack with some menthol and licorice thrown in. On the palate this is a complete and perfectly resolved wine and had with a nice mouthfeel and long finish. The most impressive fully mature Haut-Bailly I can remember drinking.
