Very aromatic with cassis and stone character that follows through to a medium to full body, silky tannins and a fresh finish. Fine texture. Try in 2022.

"The 2014 Haut Batailley has a very subtle bouquet, one that bided its time in the glass and then unfolded with scents of blackberry, briary, pencil box and light graphite scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, moderate weight, classic and perhaps conservative in style. Yet the harmony is just wonderful and it slips down the throat almost too easily. As such, I feel this is a more approachable Haut-Batailley compared to other vintages, yet it has the body to reward three of four years of bottle age."

"The 2014 Haut Batailley is powerful, dense and tightly wound, with terrific energy underpinning the fruit. The 2014 has really come together nicely over the last two years. Today, the flavors are fresh, aromatic and lifted and there is lovely depth and intensity to the wine. A bit more time in bottle should help the tannins soften."
"Tasted blind. Pale rim. Thick and a little heavy and slightly rustic in terms of tannin quality. Solid representation of Pauillac but not the most exciting one. Good fruit density. I may be under scoring this. Long… 17/20 points."
