Ch Haut Batailley 2022
Vinous – Neil Martin – 93-95/100
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 multilayered 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.
Robert Parker The Wine Advocate – 91-93+/100
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.
