  • What the experts say...

    Précoce, avec un doux nez fumé de chêne mêlé d'abondantes senteurs prononcées de cassis, le Haut-Batailley 1990 se montre moyennement corsé et légèrement tannique en bouche. Etayé par une faible acidité, il développe par paliers un abondant fruité mûr. Ce vin d'une grande finesse (...) s'impose comme la plus belle réussite de la propriété depuis 1982 (...).
