The winery is located in the commune of Pauillac
in the area of the same name in the Médoc
(Bordeaux), and should not be confused with the Château Haut-Bailly
(Pessac-Léognan), which has a similar name. For a long time it was a joint property with the neighbouring Château Batailley
. In the 1855 Bordeaux Classification
it was awarded fifth place (Cinquième Cru Classé). In 1932 it came into the possession of the brothers Francis (1890-1953) and Marcel Borie (1892-1958). In 1939 they decided to divide the estate. The larger part (Château Batailley) went to Marcel, the smaller part was now called Château Haut-Batailley and went to Francis Borie. After his death daughter Françoise Brest-Borie inherited the estate.
