Tasting Note:

The creation of a second wine has led to greater selection and it feels like there is more precision during the winemaking. Batailley was always a favourite gentleman's claret for its good value, and easy-going earthy Pauillac character. The new style of Batailley is much sleeker and more refined. Produced from 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot from generous yields of 52 hl/ha, the 2018 Batailley is glossy, perfumed and rather seductive. There is a flamboyant bouquet of sweet cherries, crushed rocks, cloves, cinnamon and spice. It's rather sleek and suave with waves of pure purple fruit on the palate. The tannins are quite grand and laced with noble flavours and there's a nice sapidity too. This isn't at the top tier, but it's a fine effort and should represent good value for money.
