Chateau Batailley 5eme Cru Classe, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France, 2015

Located to the west of Mouton Rothschild, Batailley is a typical, Cabernet forward wine with a pronounced flavour of cassis. It's owned by the Castéja and Borie-Manoux families. The property has 57ha of vines which average 40 years of age. The wine are barrique aged for 18 months with 55% of the wood being new. 2015 was an excellent vintage throughout Bordeaux

"The 2015 Batailley is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot cropped at 48 hl/ha picked between 17-30 September. Matured in around 55-60% new oak, it has a very focused, intense bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, cedar and mineral notes, perhaps a little Margaux-like in style as those violets blossom with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well-judged acidity, a touch of white pepper here lending edginess, gradually building to a very composed and structured finish. This is an excellent Batailley, meliorated by the introduction of a second wine, that continues the upswing in quality over the last six or seven years. I would not be surprised if this settles at the top of my banded score once in bottle." (93-95/100) Wine Advocate, April 2016 [Barrel Sample]

"Stunningly fruity, elegant, smooth, but also with strength and depth. Wonderful wine that will give pleasure for a long time." 18/20 points, Vinum Wine Magazine, Germany, June 2018.
