Véronique Sanders and the team at Château Haut-Bailly have announced a rebranding of their wines.
The most notable feature of this rebranding is a new name for the second wine La Parde de Haut-Bailly, which after 50 years under that label has been rechristened Haut-Bailly II.
The little-known third wine, previously labelled simply as a Pessac-Léognan, has been rebranded as HB.
The label of the grand vin, of course, remains unchanged. The new names come into effect with the 2018 vintage.
The next few years will see a lot of changes at this estate, which began an impressive programme of construction during 2018.
I look forward to seeing how that is progressing, and a first taste of the 2018 vintage, including Haut-Bailly II, at the primeurs in a few weeks time.
