  • 2000 Château Haut-Bailly - France, Bordeaux, Graves, Pessac-Léognan (3/20/2020)
    In a place very consistent with the vintage. Just starting to show a hint of maturity with a lot to like. Still dark in the center but showing lighting at the outer edge.

    Nice moderately powerful bouquet of cherries, wet Tobacco and underbrush, a nice mushroom and green streak, a little mint, and maybe a hint of ground beef. However there is still some oak and heat on the nose. Fortunately it does not continue to the palate. Medium weight with a little round plushness. Moderate finish. Regardless, nice example of a medium quality aged Bordeaux.

    Also of note, I would not have guessed Graves. I would have actually guessed right bank if served blind. I would love to know the blend. (92 pts.)
