The 2006 Château Haut-Bailly has a refined and pure bouquet with hints of dark chocolate infusing the precise red berry fruit. I love the way this seductively unfurls in the glass, as if a finger is beckoning you. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a keen line of acidity, quite grippy and backward towards the finish, suggesting that this will benefit from another year or two in bottle. Elegance and power here, a Haut-Bailly cruising at a high level. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin

Berries mineral and violet on the nose follow through to a full body with chewy tannins and a beautiful floral finish. Starts out earthy but turns rich and beautiful. Evolves beautifully in the glass. Best after 2013... Berries mineral and violet on the nose follow through to a full body with chewy tannins and a beautiful floral finish.

The 2006 Haut Bailly seems to be improving in bottle. The freshness and vitality on the nose is instantly captivating with scents of wild brambles, black cherries, dark chocolate and a touch of orange sorbet. It has superb delineation and lift. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins. Great focus with superb acidity, lively and vivacious with dried tobacco, thyme and a little rosemary on the focused, poised finish. The oak is very well integrated. Could this might turn out as good as the 2005?

You need to think ahead here, because this wine is currently totally dominated by wood. The richness and classic, balanced structure that is normal with Haut-Bailly seems to have been put aside in favor of a highly polished, toast-laden style. Search for the fruit and there is blackberry,spice and fruit tannin. But it’s hard. Wait 10 years at least.

Sappy aromas of black and blue fruits licorice pastille and menthol lifted by a floral topnote. Then tight dry and classic on the palate with terrific energy and an impression of weightlessness to the youthfully imploded flavors of black fruits minerals camphor cedar and tobacco. As smooth as it is it's also quite serious and uncompromising. Showing better than a sample I tasted last year right after the bottling but still an infant. Offers impressive cellaring potential. 91(+?) points
