At just 22 hectares, it is fairly modest for a Pauillac 1855 Fifth Growth estate – when the two brothers decided to split the Batailley estate to safeguard future succession issues, Francois received the smaller part, augmented by a purchase of more vines in the 1950s but still not rivalling the 58 hectares at Batailley itself. Today it is owned by François-Xavier Borie, grandson of the original owner. Pauillac de Haut-Batailley presents a ruby red, medium-bodied wine with a well-developed, ripe fruity and spicy bouquet. The flavors are soft, savoury and round. The palate presents a beautiful structure supported by charming tannins. It is a very pleasant wine which can be enjoy at the moment.
