Chateau Haut Batailley 5th Growth Pauillac 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark purple colour with intense flavours of ripe black fruit, cedar, and<br/>rich, toasty oak. Lush and full-bodied with a very long finish, this really is<br/>enticing. Though traditional in style the abundance of Cabernet Sauvignon (70%)<br/>in the blend has created an extremely hedonistic wine.<br/><br/>

Pleasant, easy drinking wine but overall rather immemorable. For what is meant to be a very good vintage, this wine is nice but we should be demanding more than just nice. Not worth the money, but as I didn't pay I'm not too fussed!

Attractive chocolate, berry and currant aromas follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with medium fine tannins and a pretty berry, chocolate aftertaste. Seriously good value. Best wine from this estate in decades. Best after 2009. 9,580 ... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Haut Batailley 750ml
