Chateau Haut Batailley
SUB-REGION, REGION, COUNTRY
Decanter, 94 Points
A big-shouldered and muscular wine. This shows a classic Pauillac signature with the full gamut of pencil lead, cigar box, curls of woodsmoke and floral edges. Very good-quality, sappy and juicy also, and will age. Has bedded in nicely over ageing. Drinking Window 2026 - 2038
Wine Advocate, 94 Points
Blended of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Merlot aging in 60% new barriques, the 2018 Haut Batailley is very deep purple-black in color and takes some coaxing to reveal profound notes of dark chocolate, crème de cassis, blueberry pie and anise with waves of raspberry pie, lavender and Indian spices. Full, very tightly would and jam-packed with layers of crunchy black and blue fruits, it has a firm line of ripe, grainy tannins and compelling freshness, finishing long with a mineral hint coming through.
