(From 2005 Vintage) Dark fruit, mocha, coffee beans, quite generous, some oak. Very nice structure, good firm tannins, ripe fruit and a long spicy finish.
La Parde de Haut-Bailly has a deep, bright, ruby-red colour and plenty of aromatic purity on the nose, showing hints of black fruit and well-integrated oak. It is fairly close to Château Haut-Bailly thanks to its elegant, well-focused style. Due to its refined, mild tannin, 2006 La Parde de Haut-Bailly is already quite accessible and will be in superb form in five to ten years.
