Winemakers Note

A patchwork of vines spreads across ridges of sandy, gravel-studded soils that sit atop a layer of sandstone. The soils are petrified with the remains of prehistoric fossil shells that descend deep into the earth, offering exceptional drainage and rare minerals. At the heart of it all, a stone’s throw from the chateau building, lies Haut-Bailly’s most precious jewel: an eclectic cohort of ancient vines that each year bestow soulfulness and timeless continuity upon the wine. Confidence and respect for the quality of Haut-Bailly's fruit demands gentleness and minimal intervention in the winery to nurture wines of purity, charm and precision. Each subplot is harvested ‘à la carte’ to ensure that early-ripening Merlot and late-ripening Cabernet are picked in their most perfect state. Technology is placed at the service of mother nature to add precision and reduce compromise. The estate has now a new facilities at the height of its exceptional terroir. A true reflection of the grand vin, Haut-Bailly•II is the result of strict selection. It has the the purity and the precision of its big brother, while offering accessibility in its young age. A model of second wine, it is also the symbol of the second generation of the Wilmers family, who are writing a new chapter for Haut-Bailly. Its modernized label offers a nod to its past heritage by rediscovering the dot that existed on those of Haut-Bailly until 1985. Red, matching the capsule, it brings energy and discreet elegance. The label also differs from that of the grand vin, by the absence of the mention "Château". This "N°II" provides immediate pleasure while also offering a strong capacity for ageing. The parcels chosen for its blending give a delicate and suave structure. The 2021 vintage Haut-Bailly•II 2021 is a resolutely charming and elegant wine: supple, well-balanced and with a fruity freshness enhanced by smooth tannins.
