Tasted at a vertical tasting at the château. The 2009 Haut Batailley has a much tighter and less expressive bouquet than many 2009s at the moment (in fact, you might think this was a 2010 if served blind!). Fortunately it only takes a few swirls to reveal some gorgeous minerally blackberry, bilberry and crushed limestone aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a more structured 2009 Pauillac than others, yet beautifully balanced and with plenty of fruit towards the precise finish. This feels like a very polished Haut-Batailleynot in the winery, rather by nature. Tasted: July 2016; Drink: 2019-2036; Rating: 92 Points; Neal Martin; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

Sweet berry, with currant and mint on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, yet reserved and silky. Lovely finish. Rating: 90-93 Points; Wine Spectator

Currants and blackberries, with hints of sliced Shitake mushrooms on the nose. Full body, with a solid core of ripe fruit and velvety tannins. Balanced and juicy. Try in 2018. Rating: 93 Points; James Suckling
