2005 Haut-Batailley, Pauillac

SKU #1155718 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted at a vertical tasting at the château. The 2005 Haut Batailley obviously has a more intense bouquet than the 2004 with blackberry, wild hedgerow and cold gravel scents. It is still quite tight, but there is very fine precision here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe earthy black fruit. It is actually more approachable than I was expecting for a 2005 having loosened its tie in recent years. There is great depth here and fine mineralité, completing what is a classy and sophisticated Pauillac that should repay further bottle age. Chapeau! (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2017)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark There's a precise structure to this wine, which allows the detail and minerality to show against a backdrop of clean, juicy black cherry flavor. The texture is silken and gentle, the depths of tannin profound while the surface of the wine feels buoyant. A fine Pauillac to start drinking ten years from the vintage. Inner quote mark (10/2008)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very muscular and powerful with lots of tannins now, but it will come around. Full body and dense. Leave this alone for three or four years. Inner quote mark (6/2013)
