The 2022 Haut-Bailly II is based on 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Harvest here spanned from May 7 to 27, and this is the first vintage where the Le Pape cuvée is no longer being produced, hence those grapes are now included in the second wine of Haut-Bailly. This beauty offers a great nose of ripe black fruits, smoked herbs, tobacco, and black olives that carries to a medium to full-bodied, round, elegant 2022 with beautiful tannins. It's unquestionably a terrific second wine that will provide two decades of prime drinking. - Jeb Dunnuck

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 superclassic structural feel. Pretty floral notes brighten up the finish. This is beautifully done - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Silky, smooth, some raspberry leaf freshness, this is creamy, but not overly done, has intensity and depth, edges of white pepper spice and pulses of bright slate minerality. No more Château le Pape as of this vintage (after 10 years of working the 6ha vineyard to bring it up to the quality they are looking for), as from now on it has been integrated into Haut-Bailly II. 30hl/h yields, 2nd vintage in the new cellar. Gentle, low intervention winemaking. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Beautiful fragrance on the nose, so floral and aromatic. Clean and crystalline on the palate, smooth and supple but so clean and pure. Quite light, you can tell they didn’t push this, it feels calm and gentle with creamy blueberry fruit and soft black cherries. Lovely approachability and ease of drinking. Quietly seductive, has the power and concentration of the vintage but keeps a sleek and straight frame with bite and crunch. 2% Petit Verdot completes the blend. 3.8pH. As of this vintage, the 6ha Château le Pape production will go into this wine and Haut-Bailly's third wine. Consultants Christophe Olivier and Axel Marchal. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

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. - Yohang Castaing, Wine Advocate

The 2022 Haut-Bailly II, a blend of 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, is deep garnet-purple in color. Scents of black cherries, mulberries, and crushed blackcurrants jump from the glass, followed by wafts of fallen leaves, camphor, and crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate is filled with juicy black fruits and earthy accents, supported by plush, rounded tannins and soft acidity, finishing with a peppery kick. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Independent
