Haut-Bages Monpelou is Château Batailley’s little brother and has special cellar facilities in Batailley. The estate is situated in the heart of the appellation Pauillac. Property of the Castéja family in the 16th century, as was Chateau Duhart Milon, Haut-Bages Monpelou was originally linked to Chateau Duhart Milon. In 1950 Haut-Bages Monpelou was separated from the latter and has been driven as an individual estate since. Behind Haut-Bages Monpelou stands the Batailley team and knowhow.
The wine, which is vinified at Château Batailley, is a blend of 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Cabernet Franc and 33% Merlot.
