Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 91 points

A classic effort, the 2000 Haut-Bailly exhibits notes of lead pencil shavings, raspberries, black currants, and loamy soil. Subtle hints of earth and smoke are also present in this medium-bodied, stylish, well-balanced, pure wine that emphasizes restraint and graciousness over power and blockbuster intensity. It has entered its plateau of maturity, where it should remain for another fifteen years.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 90 points

Excellent saturated medium ruby. Aromatic nose of blackcurrant, licorice, tar and smoky oak. Sappy and concentrated; at once fleshy and delineated, with tactile, very primary fruit flavors. Implodes on the palate now, but will be explosive later. Finishes with a powerful tannic spine and excellent subtle persistence. A very classy Haut-Bailly that likely to be long-lived.
