Moncharm | Château Haut Bailly 2006
Château Haut Bailly 2006 is an incredible success story in itself. Moncharm has seen this label already ranking among the best vintage wines. The wine has an exquisite crimson ruby colour matched with a composed, classic bouquet with aromas of graphite, camphor, black cherries, truffles and a note of oak. On the palate, this label is multi-layered, medium bodied and has an impeccable purity and a brilliant balance. Though, this wine is approachable, it needs a decade of cellaring an will easily last for more than 25 years.
Situated on the left of River Garonne and south of Bordeaux in the Pessac-Léognan region, Chateau Haut-Bailly has a vineyard spread over a vast 74 acres piece of land. The vineyard is present on a high ridge, and the sloping terrain provides a better drainage. The soil is of crucial importance in this vineyard; Haut-Bailly has a sandy soil mixed with gravel and sits on sandstone subsoil. All of these factors create the unique character of the Haut-Bailly wine.
The Pessac-Léognan appellation is located in the graves district. This region has ten individual estates. This appellation was created in 1987 as a part of the graves present on the south of Bordeaux. This region produces the leading labels of both red and white wines. Great Bordeaux estates like Châteaux Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion are situated in this appellation "
