La Parde de Haut-Bailly, born in 1967, has been renamed after 50 years of existence. As a second wine model, the name came spontaneously: Haut-Bailly. II. This "N°II" is proud to be a reflection of the grand vin; this wine comes from a strict selection but with a capacity for more immediate pleasure. This new label will also be the symbol of a second generation that will write an additional chapter of the Wilmers family at Haut-Bailly – the construction work that began in the summer of 2018 reveals the dynamic character of the property. This label is of course different from that of its elder by the absence of the mention "Chateau", and restores the dot - touch of modernity - that existed on the labels of Haut-Bailly until 1985. The touch of red, matching the capsule is synonymous with energy and discreet elegance. The blend is a composition of lots marked with freshness and fruit, built upon a suave, elegant structure. Reflecting the virtues of the grand vin, Haut-Bailly II can be enjoyed young, although it also has good ageing potential.

Tasting Notes

This wine is a rich and powerful blend or 65% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2018 Haut-Bailly II is deep purple-black in color and leaps from the glass with exuberant notes of crushed blackberries, black raspberries and plum preserves plus hints of red and black currants, menthol, mocha and candied violets with a touch of cedar chest.
