AMA Vertical Tasting
Château Haut-Bailly (1998-2017)
I often talk with my friend, Château Haut-Bailly is the best cru to understand the Chinese philosophy of the “Ying & Yang”. You can always find a sense of power under the delicateness or a sense of gentleness inside the strength. For the last ten years, no matter how the vintage changes, HB still keeps its “Ying & Yang” charisma.
Last year, when I hadn’t decided to create my wine critic website, HB invited me to participate in a magnificent vertical tasting. It was the first time to taste 20 consecutive vintages in my life, so I hope this memorial tasting note will let you know the wisdom of two generations in HB. And I also hope these tasting notes will urge me to improve permanently in my beloved carrier.
