The Batailley’s have long been confusing to many a Bordeaux lover. Historically all one estate, the vineyard were split into two when the Borie brothers divided it in 1942. Francois Borie kept the estate that runs up to the vineyards of Ch Lynch-Bages and so Ch Haut-Batailley was born. A fine location, a fifth growth in classification it offers one of the most complete examples of Pauillac, before hitting the heights and prices of its illustrious neighbours of 1st and 2nd growth quality.
