Ch Batailley is consistently one of the most outstanding wines from Pauillac, each vintage. The secret of the wine`s success is the outstandingly ripe Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up a high proportion of the blend, the balance being Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Vibrant ruby of medium depth, this shows substantial ripe fruitiness, with attractive notes of spice. Impressively structured, with excellent fruit concentration and balanced, gentle tannins, this shows admirable length. Very distinguished, classic Pauillac, for drinking 2020–2035+.
