Description

Château Haut-Batailley is a very interesting property based in Pauillac on the Left Bank in Bordeaux.

Since 2017, Château Haut-Batailley is now owned by the Cazes family who are the owners of the famous Lynch Bages. The estate borders Lynch Bages, Les Forts de Latour and also Pichon Lalande.

This is a wine that is very popular in the UK – and actually is getting harder and harder to get hold of recent vintages.

Château Haut-Batailley is one of the favourites of the critics, with decent scores year after year.

Here we have some commentary from Neal Martin from Vinous, who awards the wine 90-92 points.

“The 2018 Haut-Batailley has a sweet, opulent bouquet of macerated black cherries, blueberry, hints of fresh fig and pressed violets. The palate is quite full-bodied, exerting a gentle grip on the entry, and the layers of black fruit are framed by supple tannins. The acidity is nicely judged here (pH 3.61), and it fans out nicely toward the finish. This is an outgoing Haut-Batailley, a sophomore vintage that wants to make an impression, and a step up from the 2017, even if I think the Cazes family will make better in the future. Drink 2023-2050.”
