An elegant, well-crafted '89. Bubbling over with blackberry, cherry and bark. Full-bodied, very velvety, well-integrated tannins and a ripe berry aftertaste. Best after 2001.

A well-toned wine, with ripe fruit. Subtle aromas of black currant, tobacco and cherry. Medium- to full-bodied, with polished tannins and a long, silky-textured finish. Best after 2003.

Elegant and tasty with cedar, plum and currant flavors of moderate depth and intensity. Lacks the richness for greatness, but it's a very good drink. Ready by 1993 or '94.

Perhaps the wines of Château Haut-Batailley live in the shadow of those of its older sibling, Château Batailley. These little brother wines, however, are graced with a certain finesse and elegance absent in the wines of the elder sibling. Violet, raspberry, cassis, and earth, especially after time in the bottle.

Offers a beautiful nose of crushed blackberry and cherry, with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with a lovely balance of silky, caressing tannins and ripe fruit. Very long and minerally, with mint and eucalyptus character. A wonderful wine from this estate. Best after 2014.

Batailley's 1996 is a well-structured, old style Pauillac with a dense ruby/purple color, earthy, cedar-tinged, black currant fruit in the aromatics and flavors, medium body, an excellent mid-palate, good depth, and a moderately tannic, firm, but pure finish. This very good to excellent Batailley will keep for two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020.

Rich and rounded red in your glass, the 1986 Haut-Batailley explodes off the nose with aromas of sweet plums and a hint of thyme. Flavors of wild cherry, minerals and slate blend softly with the massive Cabernet-dominated nose. What a nice way to dress up a roast leg of lamb. A sleek smoke and tar finish pulls the wine together nicely.
