The 2013 Haut Bailly is a cut above many Pessac-Léognan wines this year. It is bestowed an engaging, red cherry, strawberry and iodine-scented bouquet that unfolds in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with quite bold tannin for the vintage, but here there is the fruit to back it up and there is real density on the ferrous finish. "Team Sanders" has made a considered, harmonious and very agreeable wine for the vintage, even if it might pale against other recent releases. Just 2,000 cases this vintage. Last tasted at the property in March 2016 and you know, it might well garner a higher evaluation with bottle age.- Neal Martin (10/2016)

Dark purple ruby. Violet and blueberry jelly complicate aromatic herbs on the simple nose. On the palate, very fresh red and black fruit flavors show nice vibrancy but limited complexity and depth. The gentle extraction makes this seem balanced and easy to drink; should it develop more sweet, fruity flesh it will prove to be a successful Haut Bailly.- Ian D'Agata (05/2014)
