2017 Haut Batailley Verso
The Collective Review
The core of steeped plum and black cherry flavors is infused with light mesquite, black tea and tobacco hints. Shows good range and typicity, but remains a bit shy on stuffing in the end. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2026. Wine Spectator 89 points
The new second wine of Haut Batailley, the 2017 Verso is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and comes rolling out of the glass with ready-for-business notes of warm black cherries, kirsch and mulberries plus wafts of cassis and baking spices. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers bags of juicy black fruit with a soft texture and spicy finish. Drinking Window : 2020 - 2030 Read more

The 2017 Verso de Haut-Batailley is plump and rich in the glass, with lovely depth and tons of near-term appeal. Dark cherry, chocolate, spice, new leather and earthy notes meld together in this pliant, open-knit Pauillac. Drink it over the next handful of years.

First Release for Sale The Cazes family announce the release for sale of the second wine of its newly acquired estate, Château Haut-Batailley. The new label, which marks a new page in the history of this Pauillac 1855 Grand Cru Classé, is inspired by the master of imagination, Gustave Doré, in the style of true Victorian lithographs. Its subtle variations in colour bring the clouds to life in a halo of golden light. The estate’s bright and beautiful tower appears on the back side - or "Verso" in French - of the bottle. Representative of a magnificent terroir, Verso displays harmony, freshness, aromatic depth and elegance. Blend : 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot
