Château Haut-Bailly 2009

RRP £182

This wonderful wine does full justice to the investment in quality made by late owner, Bob Wilmers. On the nose it is super-sweet and seductive; beguiling and spellbinding. In the mouth, it has the most divine, gentle, yet commanding velveteen texture. It is at once understated and supremely confident. The perfectly-judged ripe fruit lends an unobtrusive, gentle warmth. This Haut-Bailly purrs across the palate.
