"The 2014 Batailley has an attractive bouquet, lilting scents of redcurrant and raspberry coulis, quite floral and very precise. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, good depth and body, rounded for Batailley and less austere than usual. It feels closed towards the finish, tight-lipped, but there is certainly grip and presence here. It will require several years in bottle before it can show its true potential, but there is a sense of class to this Batailley that I suspect will become more evident with maturity. Tasted twice with consistent notes." Neal Martin Wine Advocate 91+
"Mid crimson. Intense cassis and cherry aroma, fragrant with fresh fruit. Darker and more savoury on the palate, with freshness, finesse and fine-grained tannins. Delicious balance and good length. (JH) 16.5/20 JancisRobinson.com
