A wine with extremely integrated fruit-tannin balance, with berry, currant and mineral character. It’s so polished and pretty. Full body, juicy fruit and a fresh finish. Needs five to six years of age to soften.

Ian D'Agata - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Good medium ruby.  Aromas of dark berries, violet and licorice.  Sappy, serious and deep, offering nicely delineated flavors of blackberry, spices and fresh herbs.  Firmly structured and extremely well balanced, and juicy on the persistent finish.  This very pretty wine avoids the green notes typical of the vintage.

James Molesworth - Wine Spectator
Very perfumy and elegant for Pauillac, with a pretty rose petal hint backed by bitter cherry, red currant and bergamot notes. Offers a long, fine-grained, iron-lined finish. Should age pleasantly into a mineral-driven version. Best from 2015 through 2025.

Neal Martin - Wine Advocate
A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot, the Haut-Batailley has a leathery, earthy bouquet with a pleasant herbaceous edge, a hint of small dark cherries developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy, tertiary, saline entry. There is something agreeably briny at its core with a smooth, understates finish that lacks the length of the 2009 and 2010, but that is to be expected. Classic claret: no more, no less. Tasted April 2012

Robert Parker - Wine Advocate
Haut-Batailley always seems to represent a synthesis in style between St.-Julien and Pauillac. The silky 2011 possesses dark red and black fruits, medium body, good purity and texture, and reasonable depth. It is not a big wine, but is a well-made effort to drink over the next 10-15 years.

nk 2016-202672% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, on deep coarse gravel. 60% new oak. Deep crimson. Fresh, leafy but not green. Refreshing and lively, even at the end of a long day's tasting. Lightish, fresh and juicy, nice cool Cabernet. Light, fine tannins. (JH)16/20

René Gabriel - WeinWisser
Tiefes Purpur, satt in der Mitte, Granatschimmer am Rand. Wohliges, leicht artisanales Bouquet, erdige Trüffelnoten, reife Pflaumen, recht viel Tabak. Erhabener Gaumen, da ist viel Fleisch am Knochen, schwarze Pfefferkörner im konzentrierten Extrakt, die Tannine sind dezent trocken, respektive mürbe, klassisch, verlangt nach ebensolchen Speisen. 2019-204417/20
