Château Haut Batailley is a distinguished Fifth Growth estate in the south of the Pauillac region, very well placed next door to Lynch Bages, Pichon Lalande and Latour. It was created in 1942, when Batailley was split between the two Borie brothers, Marcel and François. Until 2017, François Borie ran it, before ihe sold it to the Cazes family, owners too of Château Lynch Bages. Making the most of the 22 hectare vineyard, Jean Michel Cazes has increased the proportion of Merlot in the wine to show a more opulent style, with 60% aged in new oak. A big, rich wine with plenty of blackcurrant fruit and toasty spice, it’ll prove one of the longest lived of 2017 for sure. “A rock star 2017” said Jeb Dunnuck. For now, it'll need to time to breathe.
