Château Haut-Bailly Pessac-Léognan Grand Cru Classé de Graves

Wine Description

(From 2006 Vintage) Terrific and distinctive, "Graves style", earthy notes on the nose combine with bright, pure cassis fruit. It has a delightfully smooth mouth-feel on the palate where the notes of fruit and spice mingle with just a hint of new oak. The finish.
