5 stars "Color: dark; Nose: complex; Aromas: tree fruit, dried fruit; Acidity: lively; Sweetness: dry; Body: firm; Finish: very persistent; Overall: well balanced; Wow. An absolutely stunning wine. Wonderful but discreet bouquet, firm body, strong but smooth tannins. Lots of fruit but well balanced with hints of graphite and long finish. "

95 points "Haut-Bailly’s American proprietor, Robert Wilmers, backed up by the brilliant Veronique Sanders, continues to go from strength to strength. A fabulous example of this estate, the 2005 is an ethereal, delicate, finesse-styled offering with intensity as well as richness. It has all the concentration one could want, but it comes across as gorgeously elegant and sublime because of its combination of delicacy, power, and depth. Beautiful raspberry, black cherry, currant, graphite, and scorched earth notes are subtle, but provocative. In the mouth, there is good acidity, medium body, ripe tannin, and terrific length. This is a beauty of haute couture from Pessac-Leognan. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2035." Best 2015-2035
