    A fruity red wine from Pauillac

    Château Haut-Batailley is a Grand Cru classified in 1855 from the appellation of Pauillac. The vineyard extends over 22 hectares. The grape varieties are 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. The soil is composed of deep gravel.

    At the tasting, the Château Haut-Batailley 2000 is of a deep ruby colour with splendid shades of purple. On the nose one can detect fragrances of raspberries, minerals and tobacco. This wine is velvety in texture with plenty of tannins, but is also very fruity and slightly acidic.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2000 Haut Batailley, served by Xavier Borie at Grand-Puy-Lacoste, showed a slight herbaceous note on the nose, accompanied by cedar and graphite aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with still quite tough tannins, foursquare in style and perhaps just missing a little persistence on the finish. As a big fan of this property, perhaps I was a little underwhelmed by this example and it was shown up by the superior 1995. Tasted July 2016.
