Delicious now, a fine value from this 5th Growth estate. About 70% Cabernet plus Merlot and Cab Franc. "Sexy creme de cassis notes along with a big kiss of cedar wood, spice box and licorice are all present in this dense, ruby/purple-colored wine, which is lush and silky smooth, with opulence and early appeal. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15-20 years." WA 91/JS 94

Last night I opened this Fifth Growth Bordeaux from Pauillac. The 2010 Chateau Haute-Batailley. Upon opening, the beautifully expressive aromas of this wine hit you right in the pleasure pocket. The dark fruits of black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black plum with notes of sweet licorice, cocoa powder and rose petals. The nose is confirmed with the dark fruits of black cherry, blackberry, black plum, there is a black tea leaf component which is nice, cassis, and a prominent smokey oak. This is a full bodied wine with medium + acidity and a medium + fine tannins with a wonderful drying feel that leads to a long lasting enjoyable finish. I believe this wine has another 10 - 15 years but I enjoy it now. Have a safe and relaxing weekend. Nostrovia!

2010. Great depth and purity. Tight and close when opened. On day 2 and 3 it becomes more transparent. Dark berries, classic currants, orange zest, waxy and honey edge, very vanilla perfect ball-shaped ice cream. Bright fruit, round, dense but elegant. Nice bitterish berry skin on finish.
