    The 2016 Haut-Bailly is medium to deep garnet-purple in color. The nose opens with beautiful floral notes of violets and lavender accented with earthy notions and sparks of crushed rocks over a core of kirsch, cassis and wild blueberries. Full-bodied, rich and seductive, it has layer upon layer of red, black and blue fruits intermingled with earth and mineral hints leading to a very long, perfumed finish.

    Dark, bright, saturated red. Sexy resiny spices and a hint of orange zest lift the wine's youthfully unforthcoming dark fruit aromas. Subtly complex but a bit unforthcoming, with its sweet, rich dark berry and spice flavors cut by savory minerality. A distinctly deeper style than the Charmes-Chambertin, showing more earth, spice and iron-like rare steak notes and finishing with greater grip. The Charmes is ethereal by comparison to this big boy, which finishes with a serious tannic structure and salty minerality.

    Wonderful aromas of tobacco, sweet fruit and licorice follow through to a full body with ultra-fine tannins that caress every inch of your palate. Love the length and subtlety to this young wine. Gorgeous. Drink after 2024.

    This is energetic and grippy, with tar and melted licorice notes wrapped around a core of bramble, red currant paste and black cherry preserve flavors. The tarry edge reemerges on the finish, working with a singed apple wood element to give this solid drive through the finish. Best from 2023 through 2038. 7,500 cases made. — JM
