Chateau Haut-Batailley 2001

90 points

Paulliac, Bordeaux. 13%

Starting to drink rather well now, this isn’t very concentrated, certainly not at all extracted. It reminded me of a good 1999.

Fresh acids and quite sweet tannins make this very appetising. Nice berry core. Good claret especially if you dislike heavier blockbusters.

Drink over the next 10 years.

This wine encouraged me to place an order for their 2009.
