Notes from the Winemaker:
2014 Château Haut-Bailly was one of the first to produce a second wine in 1967. Originated from the same plots and made with the same winemaking techniques as the first label, La Parde Haut-Bailly is subject to the same draconian selection controls. Over time, it has developed its own personality, displaying a pleasant silky texture on the palate and achieving a style of elegance and refinement. Although its softness and forward aroma mean it can be drunk sooner than Château Haut-Bailly, it also has good aging potential (5 to 8 years).

The fresh and vibrant fruit of the 2014 vintage is very present in this sweet and accessible La Parde.The softness of the Merlot blended with beautiful ripe Cabernets bring this wine an elegant structure.

Blend: 56% merlot, 30% cabernet sauvignon and 14% cabernet franc



Ratings & Reviews
92 Points - Vinous:
"The 2014 La Parde de Haut-Bailly is a generous, juicy wine. Red cherry, plum, spice and herbal notes all flesh out in the glass. Succulent and inviting, the 2014 is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Silky tannins add to the wine's finesse and sheer appeal. " Antonio Galloni - (Feb 2017)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"This has a dark, grippy edge, with ganache and bramble notes leading the way for the core of steeped plum and black currant fruit. Everything knits through the tobacco-laden finish. Nonetheless, this is a bit more open in feel than the profile might suggest, as the fruit easily wins out over the grippier notes. Best from 2018 through 2024. 4,167 cases made." - JM (Region Bordeaux)

89-90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
Barrel Sample. The second wine of Château Haut-Bailly is ripe, smooth and Merlot-based. It has soft and generous tannins, with red plum flavors. Ripe and juicy, it will develop fast. Roger Voss" - (3/1/2015)

Decanter:
"Clean tight tannins, the same blackcurrant cassis fruit spectrum but less intense than in the first wine but, great vibrancy. The wine has a pretty lift on the finish if not huge persistency, with tannins that are smooth, but present. Nicely placed, good poise. The harvest date as close to 2008 at Haut Bailly but with a bigger yield of 43hl/h. They carried out some bleeding of the tanks to concentrate the flavours in the remaining wines, hence the delicious Haut Bailly rosé that you might come across." - Jane Anson

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The La Parde de Haut-Bailly 2014 is a blend of 56% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc. It has a slightly candied, high-toned bouquet of blackcurrant pastilles and a hint of cassis, nicely defined if not complex. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly jagged tannin on the entry, plenty of dry tobacco infusing the black fruit with a firm, rather austere finish. Not bad, but I'd rather trade up to the Grand Vin." - 218, The Wine Advocate (29th Apr 2015)
