The property's third wine, "Pessac-Léognan," which bears the same name as its appellation, was created in 1987. Each plot that makes up this wine comes from our young vines - creating an accessible wine that has spent less time in barrel and can be enjoyed young. Despite reduced production, a number of quality batches combining fruit and elegance have resulted in the creation of a wine that lives up to Haut-Bailly's strict standards of quality. The 2013 vintage, full of finesse, is both lively and supple, retaining freshness and a harmonious structure.

There are only 2,500 cases of the 2013 Haut-Bailly because yields were a microscopic 20 hectoliters per hectare. Made from a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, this elegant effort boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as a beautiful, intriguing bouquet of spring flowers, creme de cassis, plums and an underlying Graves earthiness. Layered with more texture and concentration than many of its peers, it will benefit from several years of cellaring, and should last an atypically long time of 20 years.

Dense, concentrated and firm, this wine has a powerful, rich structure that promises well. Big berry fruits and dark tannins are developing well together. The wine is full of promise so drink from 2020. Fifteen-percent of the 74 acres of vines are more than 120 years old. New York banker Robert G. Wilmers bought Haut-Bailly in 1998 from the Sanders family, owners since 1955. Véronique Sanders-van Beek has run the estate since then.

Almost succulent, with dark plum and red currant fruit married to the singed apple wood and blackberry paste notes. Features a pleasant, anise-lined finish that shows good grip. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.-Tasted non-blind.
