2000 Haut Batailley

 

A good, mature Médoc to go with our duck confit. What’s not to like? This 5th growth was bought by the Cazes family of Lynch Bages not long ago and I’m willing to bet it will shift gears from “reliably foursquare” to something else again under their stewardship.This 2000 had a lovely bouquet, but proved to be past its best on the palate, albeit quite enjoyable!
