Château Haut Batailley 2016, Pauillac. Château Haut-Batailley found fame when it was recognised in the prestigious 1855 Bordeaux Classification as a Fifth Growth. Located in the very south of the Pauillac appellation, the estate is just a stone’s throw away from one of the most famous First Growths, Château Latour, and is a great opportunity for those looking to own a classified growth at an excellent price. Its vineyards benefit from the well-drained gravel soils of the region and the blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot showcases the estate’s commitment to crafting wines of exceptional character. In 2017, the Cazes family, owners of Château Lynch-Bages and Château Ormes de Pez, acquired the property from the Brest-Borie family and began writing a new chapter where there has been an even greater emphasis on quality of fruit and enhancing biodiversity. A classic Pauillac, this vintage boasts intense flavours, impeccable structure, and velvety ripe tannins. Discover fresh and earthy notes, reminiscent of forest-floor, tobacco, cassis, and a subtle touch of chocolate. This vintage was awarded 94 points by James Suckling, and it is one of the most celebrated Bordeaux vintages in recent years. With its impeccable structure and ageing potential, this vintage will continue to develop over the next 15 years, rewarding those with the patience to let it mature. Pair it with a succulent lamb roast, a classic beef Wellington, or a selection of aged cheeses to unlock the full potential of its flavours..
