Pauillac Château Haut Batailley 5ième Cru Classe Bordeaux 2007

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £30 from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/139336.Pauillac is an appellation created in 1936,although there has been viticulture here for centuries,for red wines from the commune of Pauillac and a few clearly marked parcels outside it. Pauillac is located on the eastern side vof the Medoc peninsular about 25 miles north of the City of Bordeaux and is one of the Bordeaux region's more prestigious appellations with 18 classed growths in the 1855 classification including three of the first growths. Chateau Haut-Batailley was a fifth growth in that classification and the 2007 vintage consists of 73% cabernet sauvignon,23% merlot,3% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot and was aged in oak barrels for 18 months.I started my bottle last night with my supper of roast chicken.It is a very dark coloured and full bodied wine with some blackcurrant and blackberry style fruit and a suggestion of coffee or smoke.The tannins were soft and smooth although it was beautifully structured. In short this is an exquisite claret that would pair many foods.
