External Reviews for Château Haut-batailley Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
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.
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.
Scents of dried leather and black tea emerge from eh spicy berry fruit, then the wine shifts to a mineral, graphite finish of tannin. It's not gripping or powerful, just an appealing wine for short-term cellaring.
Medium red-ruby. Ripe, smoky aromas of plum and caramel; this smells opulent! Fat and sweet in the mouth, with a slightly roasted character to the supple plum and leather flavors. In a heavier style than the 2006 but with a reasonably fine-grained texture. Finishes with dusty tannins. I find this less refined than the 2006, but there's more material and ripeness here.
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.
Although this 1999 is pinched and compressed in the finish, it offers elegant, sweet/spicy black currant fruit intermixed with notions of toast, cedar, and dried herbs. This medium-bodied Pauillac is best consumed during its first decade of life.
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.
