Tasting Notes

The 2012 La Parde de Haut-Bailly is a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. It has quite a polished and generous bouquet, perhaps without the complexity of its 2010 counterpart, although it does open up nicely with hints of blood orange (possibly from the Merlot) emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a soft and silky entry, fleshier than the 2010, with commendable depth, mainly black fruit with a seam of pencil lead toward the fresh and vibrant finish. This is another excellent Deuxième Vin from the estate. Tasted March 2017. Drink 2019-2032

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (Interium E), July 2017

This is excellent for the vintage with a lovely berry and velvety tannins. Juicy. Plum, coffee and spice. Savory. Second wine of Haut-Bailly.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2013

Lavender, crushed flowers, red berries, mint and sweet spices lift from the glass in the 2012 La Parde de Haut-Bailly. The tannins need air to soften, but there is plenty to like in this decidedly mid-weight, gracious second wine from Haut-Bailly. The blend is 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, which is a bit less Merlot than the norm.
