The Merlots of 2017 are both fruity and balanced. Cabernets offer a pleasant aromatic freshness and savory tannic structure with good density. The overall yield of the vintage is quite low. The 2017 blend of Haut-Bailly is particularly floral and is composed of those parcels spared by Mother Nature - the plots of old vines which make up the historic heart of the vineyard.
'The wine hits the palate with the profound elegance and purity that have become so much a characteristic under Wilmers and Sander.' - Robert Parker
