Ratings
The Wine Advocate - "The 2015 Haut Batailley is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot, matured in 60% new oak. It was picked between 21 September until 2 October. It is a level up from the 2015 Lacoste Borie with much more fruit intensity: blackberry, boysenberry, tobacco and cedar aromas. It gathers momentum in the glass and develops a subtle mint accent. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, lithe tannin, very well balanced with just a slight tinniness that will disappear by the time in bottle. I love the pencil shaving sprinkled over the aftertaste here. With very good substance and impressive length, this is a classic Pauillac that I suspect will offer 25 or 30 years of pleasure. Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points"
Awards
Wine Spectator - "This has a rather streamlined feel, with notes of red currant preserves, violet and iron all in lock step from start to finish. Shows nice purity. Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"
Vineyard Notes
The vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon 65%; Merlot 25%; Cabernet Franc 10%) lie on deep gravel beds over limestone. Vinification includes up to 20 months' wood ageing, 40% new. It is classified as a 5ème cru classé.
Other Notes
A curious name, Batailley! According to local history, the land belonging to this Bordeaux Great Growth was a battle site for the English and French armies during the Hundred Years' War. Purchased by the Bories in the 1930s, Chateau Haut-Batailley was formerly owned by the Halphens, a family of Parisian bankers. Chateau Haut-Batailley's reputation is much older still: Chateau Batailley's nobility dates back to 1855 when it was listed as a Bordeaux Great Classed Growth in the 1855 Classification for the Paris Universal Exposition, created on orders of Emperor Napoleon III
