After tasting this wine several times out of cask, I had believed that the 1986 Haut-Batailley was one of the finest wines made at this estate in more than a decade. However, three tastings from the bottle have revealed a wine that is attractive, but... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1986 Haut Batailley 1500ml

Elegant and tasty with cedar, plum and currant flavors of moderate depth and intensity. Lacks the richness for greatness, but its a very good drink. Best after 1992. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1986 Haut Batailley 1500ml

After tasting this wine several times out of cask I had believed that the 1986 Haut-Batailley was one of the finest wines made at this estate in more than a decade. However three tastings from the bottle have revealed a wine that is attractive but does not have the depth or aging potential that I originally thought. It is atypically supple and silky for a 1986 with a pleasing currant fruitiness married nicely to toasty oak. It is medium bodied but seems to fall off on the palate revealing

This 1986 5th growth is nothing short of classic Pauillac. Aromas of dried leather dried red fruit and turned earth are followed by dried plum and cassis. The palate is smooth and embodies classic perfectly-aged Bordeaux from a top flight Pauillac vintage. The tannins are completely integrated the acidity lingers throughout with a rich flavor profile of dried red fruit smoked grilled meat accents and just a kiss of black truffle on the back end. This is a great wine to drink now and over

Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted 6/90. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
