Château Haut-Batailley

About Château Haut-Batailley

Chateau Haut-Batailley marks the entrance into the vineyard of Pauillac with the iconic l’Aspic tower that dominates the estate. The estate is a classified growth, including in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. However, the actual vineyard of Chateau Haut Batailley was defined in 1942 when the estate was divided into two separate properties. In 2017, a new chapter under the Cazes family of Chateau Lynch-Bages began and promises to be extremely exciting.

Viniculture

The vineyard extends over forty hectares on soils of deep Garonne gravel. Twenty-two hectares are currently in production. When the Cazes family took over, nineteen hectares of land with planting rights within AOC Pauillac had not been planted (they were never reinstated after Phylloxera). In 2018, following an in-depth study of the terroirs, an extensive planting programme was started.

Particularly representative of the Pauillac appellation, grapes are currently Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Chateau Haut-Batailley and Verso, the second wine of the property, complement each other to write the history of the property.

The new label is inspired by the master of imagination Gustave Doré, in the true style of Victorian lithographs. Its subtle variations in colour bring the clouds to life in a halo of golden light.

Wine Advocate (86)

Made in a light, finesse style, this fluid, charming, ripe, medium-bodied 1997 exhibits smoky, black currant fruit, pleasing ripeness, and attractive levels of fruit. It should be drunk over the next 5-6 years for its undeniable easy-going personality.

Attractive chocolate, berry and currant aromas follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with medium fine tannins and a pretty berry, chocolate aftertaste. Seriously good value. Best wine from this estate in decades. Best after 2009. 9,580 cases made. -JS

Haut-Batailley 2004 (11x75cl)

Wine Advocate (86)

Tasted at a vertical tasting at the château. The 2004 Haut Batailley was very closed on the nose and I actually prefer the 2003 in terms of personality. It reluctantly offers tarry black fruit, smoke and tobacco but it feels quite pinched. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, nicely balanced and though not a complex Pauillac, there is a slightly meatiness on the finish as its moves into secondary flavors that partly compensates for the meanness of the aromatics. Perhaps another couple of years in bottle might help. That said, instincts tell me that the best years might already be behind it. Tasted July 2016.

Haut-Batailley 2006 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (91)

Tasted at a vertical tasting at the château. The 2006 Haut Batailley is a wine that I have always appreciated and at ten years of age, I have no reason to change that view. It has a such a lively and vivacious bouquet, especially when compared to the sultrier (if ultimately superior 2005 Haut-Batailley). The palate is underpinned by very fine tannin, the acidity quite noticeable but simply lending freshness and tension. There is a sense of this being a Pauillac that is tightly coiled and there is a lot of energy on the finish. This is a great success for the vintage, but if you can wait another couple of years, it should manifest more intriguing secondary notes and turn into a more interesting Pauillac. Tasted July 2016.

Wine Advocate (91)

Tasted at a vertical tasting at the château.The 2008 Haut Batailley is service back to normal after the rather lacklustre 2007. It has a well defined, blackberry, minerally nose that has a sense of brightness and vivacity—a vivid set of aromatics that entice you inwards. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and focused with great tension and energy. I appreciate the purity embroidered into this wine from start to finish, the manner in which it gently fans out towards the long and precise finish. Excellent for the vintage, this is probably very good value in today's market. Tasted July 2016.
