Batailley 2023

Batailley

Case Format: 6x75cl

Drinking Window: 2048.0

One of the oldest estates in Bordeaux, Châteaux Batailley has a long, rich history that dates back to the 15th century. The richness of the soil is peppered throughout the wine, resulting in a tantalising product that is both complex and well-rounded. The vineyard sits on the southern end of Pauillac, on a plot that housed the Anglo-French battle during the Hundred Years War, with the first vines planted on this blood-soaked ground only a few years after. Today it is now planted with the harmonious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (c.70%), Merlot (c.25%), Cabernet Franc (c.3%) and Petit Verdot (c.2%) which have formed a nose of black and red fruit, whilst intense flavours of blackcurrant and spices dance together on the palate. Respected as a staple example of Pauillac wine, Château Batailley creates reliable yet spectacular wines with unquestionable finesse.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2023 Batailley is deep garnet-purple in color. It needs some swirling to coax out notes of blackcurrant jelly, plum preserves, and raspberry leaves followed by hints of rosebud tea, fertile loam, iron ore, and tree bark. The medium-bodied palate is tight-knit and refreshing, with firm fine-grained tannins and beautiful tension supporting the energetic black berry flavors, finishing long and savory. The blend is 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot.

Jeb Dunnuck

Deep ruby/plum-hued, the 2023 Château Batailley offers a spicy, red and black-fruited, lead pencil-driven perfume to go with medium-bodied richness and depth on the palate. Its nicely balanced, has some of the firmer tannins of the vintage, and has good length. It should be an outstanding wine when all is said and done.
