Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 91-93/100
The 2022 Haut-Bailly II is bright, fresh and vibrant, almost surprisingly so
for such a torrid vintage. Medium in body and gracious, the 2022 is all
class. Like so many wines in this vintage, Haut-Bailly II offers a compelling
mix of ripe, radiant fruit supported by a super-classic structural feel. Pretty
floral notes brighten up the finish. This is beautifully done.
Robert parker’s Wine Advocate – 90-92/100
A blend of 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2022 Haut-Bailly II reveals aromas of licorice, dark berries, plum, spices and cherries, followed by a medium to full-bodied palate that’s round, succulent and concentrated, concluding with a penetratingly saline finish. It’s a fleshy yet long Haut-Bailly II, matured in only 30% new oak. The erstwhile Château Le Pape is now partly integrated in this cuvée.
