A rich yet dry Pauillac that's now very attractive to drink and has a good harmony in spite of the generous alcohol. Long, supple finish. - 93 points James Suckling

Tasted at a vertical tasting at the chateau. The 2009 Haut Batailley has a much tighter and less expressive bouquet than many 2009s at the moment (in fact, you might think this was a 2010 if served blind!). Fortunately it only takes a few swirls to reveal some gorgeous minerally blackberry, bilberry and crushed limestone aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a more structured 2009 Pauillac than others, yet beautifully balanced and with plenty of fruit towards the precise finish. This feels like a very polished Haut-Batailley not in the winery, rather by nature. Tasted July 2016. - 92 points Neal Martin , The Wine Advocate

The name Chateau Batailley is derived from the battle (bataille) that took place during the Hundred Years' War around 1453, designating where the château and vineyard are today.

Paulliac is located on the left bank of Bordeaux and dominates the rest of Bordeaux with concentration of first growth properties. The gravel soils produce powerful and age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignons.
