Chateau Haut - Batailley 2009
Pauillac, Bordeaux

Historically the estate was part of Château Batailley until its purchase by the brothers François and Marcel Borie in 1932, and division into two properties 1942, in order to prevent inheritance difficulties. The smaller part which did not include the Batailley château became the property of François Borie who added to its vineyards with land acquisitions from Château Duhart-Milon while also running Château Ducru-BeaucaillouFollowing his death in 1953, the property passed on to his daughter Françoise de Brest-Borie, while being administered by her brother and Ducru-Beaucaillou owner Jean-Eugène Borie.

In 2017, the Cazes family of Château Lynch-Bages has acquired the Château Haut-Batailley estate.

The vineyard area extends 22 hectares (54 acres) planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc.

Gorgeous inviting nose with creamy blackcurrant and plum to the fore.Dense and concentrated on the palate but with no lack of elegance. Oak totally subsumed into the wine, tannins present but very ripe, a very fine wine with bags of ageing potential.
