Average Score 90.38

This is very Pauillac with graphite, blackcurrant and mint character. Medium-bodied, tight and focused. Shows energy and precision.
The Casteja family owns this 15ha estate on the gravelly plateau of Batailley, between châteaux Grand Puy Lacoste and Batailley. The vines were part of Duhart Milon until the 1860s, so was in fact classified in 1855 before being sold off separately and losing its classified status. The wine is vinified at Batailley. It takes its time to open, but has a lovely richness once it does, showing subtle but rich black fruit flavours with soft tobacco notes. It has strict tannins and is full of Pauillac character, a little more austere than Lynch Moussas but clearly one that is going to settle into itself. It's an excellent wine that's worth knowing about.
The 2017 Haut-Bages-Monpelou, which is vinified at Château Batailley, has a clean and fresh, mint-tinged bouquet that opens nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, plenty of tightly wound black fruit laced with tobacco towards the saline finish. Enjoy this well made, lesser-known Pauillac over the next four or five years. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Haut-Bages Monpelou (a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc) opens with pronounced cassis, black plum and blueberry notes with hints of anise, yeast extract and tar. The palate is medium-bodied with a solid frame of chewy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing on an earthy note. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com
