  • Neal Martin, April 2023, Score: 93-95

    The 2022 Haut-Batailley is matured in 65% new oak for a planned 16 months. It has a very intense and almost untamed bouquet that explodes from the glass, and only after five or ten minutes does it begin to show some restraint. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy, fresh and multi-layered tannins, not dissimilar to the Mouton-Rothschild that I tasted a couple of hours earlier. With a satin-textured finish, this will need a decade in the cellar and some taming during élevage. Like a young tiger at the moment. It has 14.2% alcohol. Drink 2033-2070

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 91-93+

    A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, the 2022 Haut-Batailley offers up aromas of sweet berries and plums mingled with licorice and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, firm and structured, it's a serious, rather muscular and extracted wine that begins to nod toward its stablemate Lynch Bages in style.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 93-95

    The 2022 Haut-Batailley is a potent, brooding wine. Black cherry, gravel, cured meat, spice and leather infuse the 2022 with tons of mineral and savory intensity, backed by a formidable spine of tannin that gives the wine shape and vertical thrust. I imagine the 2022 will need the better part of a decade to come into its own. Tasted two times. Drink 2030-2052.

  • Goedhuis, May 2023, Score: 91-93

    Now in its seventh vintage under the team from Lynch Bages, this 2022 is very much cut from the same cloth: it is big and powerful, and very well balanced. A wine with a lot of promise, the nose is currently wood-dominated with milk chocolate and mocha touches and a dash of toasty sandalwood. Rounded and dense, the palate has a touch of salinity and high levels of fresh acidity, with leathery tannins needing time to resolve.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 94-95

    Classy and very focused with blackberry and blackcurrant character. The tannins nicely melt into the wine with finesse and weightlessness. Elegant. 70% cabernet sauvignon and 30% merlot.

  • Jane Anson, April 2023, Score: 93

    Sculpted plum and raspbery puree fruits, fresh lift through the palte, this is a lovely wine that has intense liquorice and bilberry fruit, a little austere in its tannic structure on the finish, more so than in recent vintages at this sculpted fruit-forward Pauillac, but there is great spice here, and has the phenolic richness and density of the year. 3.73ph, 65% new oak.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 94-96+

    The 2022 Château Haut-Batailley is much more structured and darker than the Verso, offering classic Pauillac cassis, currant, tobacco leaf, melted chocolate, and espresso nuances, with an almost iron-like hint that emerges with time in the glass. Full-bodied, concentrated, and powerful, it's nevertheless balanced and textured. It's a brilliant wine, if not the finest vintage I've tasted from this château.

  • LPB, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    The 2022 Haut-Batailley, 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, is deep garnet-purple in color. It gallops out with bold notions of warm cassis, blackberry pie, and black raspberries, followed by hints of clove oil, tilled soil, and lilacs. The medium to full-bodied palate has a rock-solid backbone of firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness to support the taut, muscular fruit, finishing long and minerally. pH 3.73, TPI 92.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 18+

    Château Haut-Batailley (5ème Cru Pauillac) 70 Cabernet Sauvignon, 30 Merlot 65% new oak 14.2% alc 10 This is a succulent and compelling Haut-Batailley, marked by generous oak and firm, regimented tannins, and it is a thrilling amalgam of commanding Cabernet and siren-song Merlot. I have always been a massive fan of Haut-Batailley, and with its new ownership and an eye-catching label make-over, this is a fascinating and desirable wine in this gripping 2022 campaign.

Producer

Château Haut-Batailley

Château Haut-Batailley was bought by Jean-Charles Cazes of Ch Lynch Bages in 2017 from François-Xavier Borie. It has one of the highest vine densities in Bordeaux at 10,000 vines per hectare, and holds a superb location, neighbouring Chx Lynch Bages, Latour and Pichon Lalande.

Region

Pauillac

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
