Reviews of purchase Chateau Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Leognan AOC, 2002
The color of wine a deep, opaque, violet-purple.
The taste of wine is fresh, concentrated, juicy, well-balanced and rigorous. Slightly bitter tannins give the taste a little sharpness, relaxed shades of black cherry, black currant, oak, smoke, tar and cranberries.
Discreet aroma of wine and strong, but at the same time, very clean, deep, beautiful and intense. The bouquet caught echoes of red and black fruit, underbrush, tobacco, ripe blueberry, cherry and black currant.
The wine is excellent with red meat and game birds sauce.
