This yellowing page comes from Henry Guillier’s book “Grands Vins de la Gironde Illustrés” published at the beginning of the 20th century. Haut-Bailly is mentioned as being the only Graves, together with Haut-Brion, worthy of being ranked among the Bordeaux Classified First Growths.
This is a very successful wine, with wood and fruit notes that combine seamlessly with layers of acidity. At its base is a serious structure of dark tannins; on top, juicy black fruits shine. This is a wine for long-term aging.
