Tasting Note:

Haut Batailley is overseen by the same management, vineyard and consultancy team as Grand Puy Lacoste, and the 2009 is fabulous. It is produced from a 22 hectare site on deep gravel/pebble soils. 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc. A classic and wonderful Haut Batailley with aromas of pencil shavings, cut flowers, crème de cassis and a beautiful stoney minerality. The palate is awash with vivid black and blue fruits, dark chocolates, and a savoury side with hints of mocha and cured meats. This is wonderfully ripe, with ample lush, svelte fruit, velvety texture, splendid granite tannins and wonderful persistent flavours. Delicious and hopefully one of the best values from 2009...
