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!

Quite good aroma including coffee and chocolate. Black currant. Elegant. Mid+ body. Good balance among spiciness, acidity and tanning. Mushroom. It is better to wait it for more than 2 hours. @8100, AD wine - JH, 200103-200124

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.

酸味豊かだが、甘さは控え目で浮ついたところはなくしっかりしている。黒い果実と赤い果実の中間で、どちらかと言うと赤い果実味に近い。かと言ってラ・ラギューヌのようなブルゴーニュとボルドーの中間のような軽やかなニュアンスではなく、重心は低い。

Well structured elegantly balanced wine, with a long finish. Much nicer than the Haut-Bages Libéral 2010 which proceeded it....
