"Barrel sample according to Clyde Beffa, K&L's Bordeaux Buyer: "56% cabernet sauvignon, 38% merlot and 6% cabernet franc. This wine tastes much better at the Chateau, but the aromas were great every time we tasted it. 50% into first wine. It is a pure expression of the terroir with only 50% new oak used. Here as in Haut-Brion, the Merlot was the strength behind the blend (Unusual in 2003). Also they had good rainfall on July 15th, August 16th and August 19th to replenish the moisture in the soil. As a result their wines did not suffer from the heat. A good proportion of clay soil also helped. Very sweet aromas of violets and undertones of black licorice. Sweet palate entry; Substantial on the palate. Mid-fruit is there. Some extraction and grip with noticeable tannins at the back. Normal size crop here (6000 cases)"

"88-90 points: A very strong effort from the noble estate, Haut-Bailly's 2002 exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of graphite, cherries, berries and spice box. Stylish, with medium weight, elegance, and a wonderful inner core of pure, finely etched fruit, it will be at its finest between 2007-2016." Best 2007-2016
