Description

The richness and elegance of a Pauillac wine

The estate

A Fifth Grand Cru Classe in the Official Classification of 1855, Château Haut-Batailley is a benchmark of quality in the Pauillac appellation. Its name is derived from the word “battle”, in memory of the battles that allegedly took place on the estate at the end of the Hundred Years’ War, in the 15th century.

Since 2017, Château Haut-Batailley has been run by the Cazes family, who continue the work initiated by the Borie family since 1930. Today, they continue to produce fine wines from this essential Médoc estate, on the Left Bank of Bordeaux.

The vineyard

A benchmark among fine Pauillac wines, the terroir of Château Haut-Batailley covers some forty hectares, including 22 hectares of vineyards. The vines are 35 years old on average and are located in the south of the Pauillac appellation. The soil is composed of fine Garonne gravel and clay.

The vintage

The early budding of the vineyard, despite a mild and rainy winter, was slowed down by the coolness and humidity recorded between April and May. A hot and dry end of spring preceded unstable weather conditions until June 25th which gave way to a summer with little rainfall thus favouring the gradual and optimal ripening of the grapes.

Vinification and ageing

The hand-picked grapes are selectively sorted in the vineyard and on a sorting table. Aged for 16 months in French oak barrels, 70% of which are new.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (70%)

Merlot (30%).
