The 2006 Haut Bailly is just now entering its prime drink window, and is certainly a gorgeous bottle of wine. Still ruby colored and youthful, with terrific notes of blackcurrants, black cherries, truffle, and scorched earth, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a beautiful, supple, sexy texture, and sweet tannin. It’s an irresistible, elegant, layered Pessac to drink anytime over the coming two decades. - Jeb Dunnuck

A superb success for the vintage, the 2006 exhibits a deep ruby/purple hue as well as a poised, classic bouquet of sweet black cherries, graphite, camphor, truffles, and a subtle hint of oak. Medium-bodied with a stunningly layered texture, impressive purity, and beautiful balance, this cuvee is haute couture in a glass. Although surprisingly approachable, it won’t hit its adolescent stage for 8-10 years, and will last for 25-30 years thereafter. Bravo! - Robert Parker

This 2006 proves again that Haut-Bailly makes wines that are built to last. You are firmly in the Left Bank register here, with silky texture and a sense of restraint to the closely knit black fruits, plus smoke and graphite undertones. Everything is precise, considered and balanced with subtle extraction. Drink now with carafing. Drinking Window 2016 - 2030 - Jane Anson, Decanter

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Haut-Bailly has a refined and pure bouquet with hints of dark chocolate infusing the precise red berry fruit. I love the way this seductively unfurls in the glass, as if a finger is beckoning you. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a keen line of acidity, quite grippy and backward towards the finish, suggesting that this will benefit from another year or two in bottle. Elegance and power here, a Haut-Bailly cruising at a high level. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
