Château Haut-Bages Monpelou 2002

86 points

Pauillac, Bordeaux, France. 13%

A Cab, Cab Franc blend that is surprisingly not fragrant, fresh or varietal – especially so given the vintage. A warm mellow rustic claret. Old fashioned, inexpensive.

I think it is a 2nd wine (of 5th growth Ch. Batailley) although the (lovely old fashioned) label doesn’t give any clues, to me at least.
