Description

The name of "Batailley" would come from the "Battle" which took place in 1453 between the French and the English on the lands of the future domain; with the reconquest of Château Latour by the French, this year saw the end of the Hundred Years War. Château Batailley is one of the oldest residences in the town of Pauillac.
Vines have been planted on this land rich in history since the 17th century. In 1855, Château Batailley was classified in the Fifth Grand Cru category of the Médoc.

Château Haut-Batailley is a distinguished wine estate situated in the Pauillac appellation of Bordeaux, France. With a history spanning centuries, the estate has earned renown for its production of high-quality red wines. Covering approximately 22 hectares, the vineyard benefits from gravelly soils and a favorable microclimate, ideal for nurturing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot grapes. Château Haut-Batailley's wines are celebrated for their depth, structure, and aging potential, showcasing ripe fruit flavors, refined tannins, and a distinct Pauillac character. Under the ownership of the Cazes family, who also own Château Lynch-Bages, the estate combines traditional winemaking techniques with modern innovations, solidifying its reputation as a cornerstone of the Pauillac appellation.

Tasted at a vertical tasting at the château. The 2010 Haut Batailley is beginning to reach the potential I enthused about when I first tasted this from barrel. Much like the 2009 Haut-Batailley, it has a very expressive bouquet that needs a lot of coaxing from the glass. And like many 2010s it is a broody bugger, stubborn and obdurate but when you get to the palate...this is where the action is! This is where the quality positively shines through with very fine tannin: extremely pure fruit, a judicious touch of spice and a long and tender finish that is seamless. It needs 8-10 years for those aromatics to open but judging by the quality of the palate, it will be worth the wait. Tasted July 2016.
