Fifth Growth, Bordeaux
|Grape Variety:||Cabernet Sauvignon based blend|
|Wine Style:||Dry Red, Full-Bodied|
Rating: Wine Advocate 92
The 2014 Haut Batailley has a very subtle bouquet, one that bided its time in the glass and then unfolded with scents of blackberry, briary, pencil box and light graphite scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, moderate weight, classic and perhaps conservative in style. Yet the harmony is just wonderful and it slips down the throat almost too easily. As such, I feel this is a more approachable Haut-Batailley compared to other vintages, yet it has the body to reward three of four years of bottle age.
