Château Haut-Bailly

The Château Haut-Bailly produces wines whose qualitative nobility places it among the greatest of the Rive gauche de Bordeaux. Its winegrowing history dates back to the 17th century, when it was already the envy of many buyers.  Read more

Château Haut-Bailly

In the 1630s, it passed into the hands of two Parisian bankers, Nicolas de Leuvarde and Firmin Le Bailly, the latter of whom gave it his name, Haut, in reference to its location on one of the most beautiful hilltops in the Graves region. It wasn't until the end of the 19th century that its owner at the time, the engineer Alcide Bellot des Minières, introduced the necessary innovations to raise it to the level of the greatest wines of Bordeaux. In particular, he had the building of Château constructed as we know it today. 

Classified as a Graves wine in 1953, it was acquired by the American Wilmers family in 1998, and today Chris Wilmers has been at the helm since 2017, accompanied by Véronique Sanders the general manager. For the 2021 harvest, the new winery at Domaine was inaugurated, featuring state-of-the-art technology and perfectly integrated into the landscape thanks to its semi-buried design.

The Château Haut-Bailly produces only red wines and is based on a 30-hectare vineyard planted on gravel and sand soils. 

- The red grape varieties are 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. The grand vin is aged for 16 to 18 months in French oak barrels, 50 to 65% of which are new. La Parde Haut-Bailly is the Second red wine. 

The Château Haut-Bailly produces wines with exacting precision, which have an inimitable style in the appellation. They harmoniously combine balance, concentration and aromatic finesse.
