95-96 JS / 92-94 VM / 91-93 JD / 92 DE / 87-89 WA

Lots of blackcurrant with crushed stone, licorice, iodine and graphite. Blue fruit, too. It’s full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins that are refined and polished. Seamless. Excellent second wine. - James Suckling
 
The 2020 Haut-Bailly II is superb. The tannins and overall structure are suggestive of an important Pessac-Léognan that is going to need time to come around. Dark blue/purplish fruit, lavender and menthol are front and center. A wine of savory energy and intensity, Haut-Bailly II sizzles with energy. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

The second wine of Château Haut-Bailly and 54% Merlot and 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2020 Haut-Bailly II sports a healthy purple color as well as classic Pessac-Léognan notes of damp earth, cedary herbs, tobacco, and assorted red and black fruits. With good density, medium to full-bodied richness, and a ripe, expansive texture, this is unquestionably an outstanding second wine that I would be happy to drink any time over the coming 15+ years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Inky colour, pencil lead and smoke concentration, where the tannins lend a sense of pressure bearing down on the fruit, keeping things moving and building in tension through the palate. Tiny edge of peony and iris flower as it opens in the glass. Harvest September 9 to 25th. Extremely well extracted, this is not a delicate wine but it is a measured one, and it has the sense of slowly building towards the close of play that is most enjoyable. 30% of overall production in HBII this year. Not vinified in the cellar, but will be aged in it. Drinking Window 2025 - 2038 - Jane Anson, Decanter

Composed of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon and 54% Merlot, the 2020 Haut-Bailly II was harvested from the 9th to 25th of September. Deep garnet-purple in color, it skips out of the glass with easy-breezy notes of cassis, fresh black plums and raspberry leaves, plus hints of wild thyme, tilled soil and ground cloves. The medium-bodied palate is soft and juicy with just enough black fruit and savory flavors and a refreshing finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
