1990 Haut-Batailley, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1990 offers a forward, smoky, sweet oaky nose intertwined with bold and lavish aromas of blackcurrants. Medium-bodied, with low acidity, light tannins, and layers of ripe fruit, this finesse-styled wine should provide superlative drinking for more than a decade. It is the finest Haut-Batailley since 1982.
