Château Haut Batailley





Grape Variety:

Cab Sauvignon Merlot

Château Haut Batailley, 5ème Cru Classé, Pauillac, 2019

Tasting Note:

Jean-Charles described 2019 as “Blue Velvet”, a vintage that offers “a beautiful complementarity between fruity Merlots, rich in sugar… and dense, well-structured, very fresh Cabernets”. The 2019 is the most attractive Haut Batailley made under the new regime. It is reminiscent of Xavier Borie wines with its clear, transparent core of cassis and stony minerals, but there is a bit more polish; the fruit is a little more luxuriant and velvety in texture. There’s a great sense of poise and energy: classical, balanced, rather handsome Pauillac that will reward patience. A very smart Haut Batailley. Produced from 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot, aged in 60% new French oak for 14 months.
