Château Haut Bailly is a Grand Cru Classé in the Pessac Léognan appellation of the Bordeaux region. Situated on high ground just east of Léognan, Haut Bailly’s terroir benefits from gravel, sandstone and sand over limestone soils. The 39 hectares of vineyard are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (c.60%), Merlot (c.34%), Cabernet Franc (c.3%) and Petit Verdot (c.3%). Previously only 30 hectares in size, as of 2022, Haut Bailly added vines from their neighbouring estate – Château Le Pape to expand their vineyard. As time goes on we are to expect less Cabernet Sauvignon, more Petit Verdot and less Cabernet Franc as the vineyard continues to evolve. On average Haut-Bailly’s vines are around 38 years of age, but it must be noted that over half the vineyard is more than half a century old, with 15% of the vines being over 120 years in age. The end result is a wine full to the brim with spices, juicy fruit, smoke and tobacco, forming a full-bodied blend that is imbued with balance and finesse, drawn from Haut Bailly’s historic landscape.
