I found the nose of the '89 Château Haut-Batailley Red Bordeaux to be quite herbal, with some forest floor, licorice and muted dark fruit aromas. It was full-bodied, but still velvety with a sweet aftertaste. Nice enough, but I would not cellar much longer.

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! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Smoky dry aged meat, tart and acidic on palate. Gorgeous. Driven by red fruit. Drink now.

Very youthful on the palate. Quite expressive fruit and just a touch of leather showing.

Was that an off bottle? Pretty light fruit suppressed under heavy Brett. Disappointing.
