On the nose notes of fresh roasted coffee black pepper and vanilla. In the mouth this wine already is showing its excellent potential.

Currants and blackberries with hints of sliced Shitake mushrooms on the nose. Full body with a solid core of ripe fruit and velvety tannins. Balanced and juicy. Try in 2018.

Just like its older brother Grand Puy Lacoste, this was initially very difficult to assess and seemed to close up. It was only returning after ten minutes in the glass that it really began to replicate its performance just after bottling last year. It has a classic Pauillac nose with blackberry, boysenberry, graphite and sous-bois. It is well defined with good intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, good acidity and an upstanding, mineral-rich finish.

A taut, sinewy style, with lots of roasted cedar, espresso and steeped black currant notes. Stays tangy through the finish, with an iron edge hanging on. There's enough purity and length to wait this out for a bit... A taut, sinewy style, with lots of roasted cedar, espresso and steeped black currant notes. Stays tangy through the finish, with an iron edge hanging on. There's enough purity and length to wait this out for a bit. Best from 2014 through 2024. –JM

As usual the 2009 Haut-Batailley is a delicate finesse-styled wine exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color as well as plenty of sweet black cherry mulberry and wild mountain berry fruit intermixed with notes of foresty underbrush. Medium-bodied with good purity sweet tannin and a forward almost St.-Julien-like personality it can be enjoyed over the next 15+ years.
