Château Haut-Batailley

a constantly evolving estate

Classified as Grand Cru in 1855, Château Haut-Batailley, represented by the Tour l’Aspic, marks the entrance to the Pauillac vineyard.

The year 2017 represents a turning point in the property's history when the Cazes family, owners of Château Lynch-Bages and Château Ormes de Pez, acquires it.

Their first focus is on the vineyard, which then extends over 22 planted hectares, with an additional 19 hectares classified as AOC Pauillac, resting on soils for many years. Starting in 2018, the technical team conducts a meticulous study of the terroirs before carrying out new plantations perfectly adapted to the different soil types.

In just three years, the vineyard area has doubled to reach 41 hectares. A unique opportunity for the team to define the style of the property's wines for the coming decades. The grape varieties, highly representative of the Pauillac appellation, now consist of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot, on soils with deep Garonne gravel.

These grape varieties give Château Haut-Batailley a particular elegance and harmony, with a fine tannic structure that will evolve in complexity and depth over time. A second wine, Haut-Batailley Verso, is created as soon as the Cazes family takes over the property. It is a luscious and generous wine with aromas of black fruits and spicy notes. Thanks to its freshness, it is a wine that can be enjoyed in its youth.

In its quest to create exceptional wines, the Château Haut-Batailley team emphasizes precision viticulture, taking into account environmental challenges. In 2022, more than 910 trees and shrubs of 14 different varieties were planted in the heart of the vineyard to promote biodiversity.
The property remains firmly rooted in its time, ready to continue its constant evolution while preserving its historical heritage. The story continues...
