Haut-Batailley always seems to represent a synthesis in style between St.-Julien and Pauillac. The silky 2011 possesses dark red and black fruits, medium body, good purity and texture, and reasonable depth. It is not a big wine, but is a well-made effort to drink over the next 10-15 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot, the Haut-Batailley has a leathery, earthy bouquet with a pleasant herbaceous edge, a hint of small dark cherries developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy, tertiary, saline entry. There is something agreeably briny at its core with a smooth, understates finish that lacks the length of the 2009 and 2010, but that is to be expected. Classic claret: no more, no less. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Very pretty length to this with silky tannins and a juicy finish. Medium to full body, with fine tannins and a fresh acidity. jamessuckling.com

Sweet berry, with currant and mint on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, yet reserved and silky. Lovely finish. WineSpectator.com

72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, on deep coarse gravel. 60% new oak. Deep crimson. Fresh, leafy but not green. Refreshing and lively, even at the end of a long day's tasting. Lightish, fresh and juicy, nice cool Cabernet. Light, fine tannins. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com
