Tasting notes

"The 2021 Haut-Batailley is matured in 70% new oak for a planned 16 months. There is a large gap between this and the Verso, this Grand Vin displaying far more delineation and complexity, furnished with quite disarming estuarine-tinged black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a little chewiness on the entry, certainly one of the more saline Pauillac wines that I have encountered, and a structured, classically styled finish. For Bordeaux lovers looking for old-school claret. (13.12% alcohol)"
Neal Martin,, May 2022

"The 2021 Haut-Batailley is a charming, medium to full-bodied, fleshy wine evocative of cassis, sweet berries, pipe tobacco and pencil shavings. Supple and succulent, with an ample core of fruit and ripe, powdery tannins, it will likely take on additional depth with further élevage. Significant replanting of fallow parcels is underway at this Pauillac estate, but those vines are currently relegated to the second wine, the Verso of Haut-Batailley."
William Kelley, Wine Advocate (260), April 2022

"A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, the 2021 Haut-Batailley is deep garnet-purple in color. It springs from the glass with blackcurrant jelly, plum preserves, and cedar notes plus wafts of underbrush and black pepper. Light to medium-bodied, the palate delivers chewy tannins with a lively backbone to support the pepper-laced black fruits, finishing long and savory.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, The Wine Independent, May 2022
