Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, May 2007,
    Score: 90-92

    Haut Batailley is perennially one of our favourites. In 2006, it is easy to see why with its fleshy yet silky palate, fine, yet delineated tannins and juicy fruit. Its lingering finish further focuses on chocolate and salty mineral flavours that culminates in a stylish finish. A lovely bottle which will be an easy favourite.

    Robert Parker, February 2009,
    Score: 89

    This property, while in the Pauillac appellation, seems to be more St.-Julien-like in most vintages. With silky tannins, its sweet berry-scented nose intermixed with some forest floor and underbrush offer impressive aromatics. The wine is medium-bodied, with silky, noble sweetness, and a fine, pure finish. It should drink well for 12-15+ years. Drink: 2009 - 2024

    Robert Parker, April 2007,
    Score: 89-91

    This feminine-styled wine is more similar to a St.-Julien than a Pauillac. A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot, the deep ruby/purple-tinged 2006 Haut-Batailley offers up sweet aromas of black cherries, licorice, currants, and a hint of underbrush along with a silky texture. Xavier Borie has been upgrading the quality at this estate over the last several years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.

    Jancis Robinson, May 2007,
    Score: 17.5

    75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, 23% Merlot. 60% new oak.Very deep crimson right out to the rim. Very delicate and singing dark red fruit. Not big but quite excessively juicy. Sweet and round with the tannins in very good balance. Crunchy juicy fruit. Well done! Really lively. Not for the very long term and a little fade on the finish but terribly pretty. Beware the drinking dates to be read with the score. If one were cruel one would call it Pauillac Lite but it should certainly be a pleasure to drink. Well restrained.

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.
