La Parde de Haut-Bailly Pessac Leognan 2014
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pessac-Leognan|
|Brand||La Parde de Haut-Bailly|
The 2014 La Parde de Haut-Bailly is a generous, juicy wine. Red cherry, plum, spice and herbal notes all flesh out in the glass. Succulent and inviting, the 2014 is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Silky tannins add to the wine's finesse and sheer appeal.
This has a dark, grippy edge, with ganache and bramble notes leading the way for the core of steeped plum and black currant fruit. Everything knits through the tobacco-laden finish. Nonetheless, this is a bit more open in feel than the profile might suggest, as the fruit easily wins out over the grippier notes. Best from 2018 through 2024. 4,167 cases made.
Barrel Sample. The second wine of Château Haut-Bailly is ripe, smooth and Merlot-based. It has soft and generous tannins, with red plum flavors. Ripe and juicy, it will develop fast.
