As usual, the 2009 Haut-Batailley is a delicate, finesse-styled wine exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color as well as plenty of sweet black cherry, mulberry and wild mountain berry fruit intermixed with notes of foresty underbrush. Medium-bodied with good purity, sweet tannin and a forward, almost St.-Julien-like personality, it can be enjoyed over the next 15+ years. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at Château Grand Puy Lacoste. A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, picked between 26th September until 7th October. This Haut-Batailley has a tight, quite elegant nose, pert black fruits, blackberry leaf, a touch of sous-bois, graphite, a hint of undergrowth. It needs time to expand and blossom in the glass. The palate is very fresh with fine tannins, surfeit with coiled energy, the finish very vibrant, slightly Oriental with faint hints of Hoi Sin and even a touch of yellow plum. Very harmonious on the finish. Excellent…it reminds me of the superb ’06. Tasted March 2010. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

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. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
