Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, April 2003

    After the slightly disappointing 2001 it is great to see this famous Pauillac back in mid season form. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon this is as racy and pure a wine as we tasted. Graceful, with beautifully managed tannin, it is one of our favourites. Described by Jancis Robinson as ‘ whistle whetting' whatever that means.

  • RP

    Robert Parker, April 2005,
    Score: 87

    A reasonably successful wine for this vintage that is showing more of a St.-Julien elegance without the typical power of Pauillac, the wine has a dark plum/ruby color, a slightly earthy, herb-tinged, raspberry and black currant-scented nose, silky tannins, medium body, and a pleasant finish. Drink it over the next decade. Drink 2005-2015

  • JS

    James Suckling, April 2003,
    Score: 89-91

    A solid core of fruit in this wine, with medium to full body, good tannins and a medium finish.

Producer

Château Haut-Batailley

Château Haut-Batailley was bought by Jean-Charles Cazes of Ch Lynch Bages in 2017 from François-Xavier Borie. It has one of the highest vine densities in Bordeaux at 10,000 vines per hectare, and holds a superb location, neighbouring Chx Lynch Bages, Latour and Pichon Lalande.

Region

Pauillac

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
