2020 Château Haut-Batailley, Cru Classé Pauillac

The 2020 Haut-Batailley is an elegantly styled Pauillac, that shows its origins on the border with St-Julien. There's fine tannins that build, and a long and stony finish, with a subtle yet charming finish. A perfect counterpoint to the power of Lynch-Bages.

TASTING NOTES

This is really minerally and stony with lots of chewy tannins. Medium-to full-bodied with a clean, fresh finish. Very classic Pauillac. Salty at the end with bitter citrus.
