2009 Pauillac 5e Cru Classe from Bordeaux

Chateau Haut-Batailley vineyard is located south-west of Pauillac appellation, and lies on 22 hectares (54.3 acres) Garonne gravel soils. The 2009 vintage is a perfect blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (78%), Merlot (20%) and Cabernet Franc (2%).

This 5e Cru Classe from Bordeaux reveals deep, dense hue, and lovely scents of lightly spiced and concentrated fruit. The palate offers a lot of finesse, and is elegant, balanced, altogether charming and quite seductive. The 2009 vintage distinctive Haut-Batailley character is even more vibrant.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at a vertical tasting at the château. The 2009 Haut Batailley has a much tighter and less expressive bouquet than many 2009s at the moment (in fact, you might think this was a 2010 if served blind!). Fortunately it only takes a few swirls to reveal some gorgeous minerally blackberry, bilberry and crushed limestone aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a more structured 2009 Pauillac than others, yet beautifully balanced and with plenty of fruit towards the precise finish. This feels like a very polished Haut-Batailleynot in the winery, rather by nature. Tasted July 2016.
