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.

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.

A dark ruby color is followed by a spicy, moderately tannic, well-concentrated, elegant wine reveals some tannin, but much more fruit than in the past. It should be drunk between 2000-2008.

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.

Medium-deep color. Aromas of black currant, licorice and exotic spices. Dense, sweet and creamy, with notes of dark chocolate and jammy berries. Lively acids give this lovely vinosity. Finishes with lush tannins, sweet oak notes and very good length.

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.

Proprietor Xavier Borie has turned out a beautiful silky-textured Pauillac revealing classic creme de cassis, licorice, and tar-like characteristics interwoven with cedar and roasted herb notes. Medium-bodied and elegant, it is more St.-Julien-like in personality than Pauillac. But who's complaining? This 2005 will provide lovely drinking in its youth, yet age well for 15 or more years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025.
