Tasting Note:

"A very cabernet-driven red with currants, light cedar, vanilla and flowers. It’s full-bodied, tight and powerful. Impressive finish. Classic. 74% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot and 1% petit verdot. 95-96/100". - James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

This is another really impressive Batailley and could represent one of the best value buys from Pauillac. Brimming with dark berries, lots of aromatic cassis, minerals, gravel and cedar; there's a real structure and precision to the fruit. It feels grown up and serious, yet there's enough flesh and plump juicy fruit to make this quite engaging and enjoyable now. Some florality and a charming red fruit character emerge from the glass with aeration. It feels very complete and classic with it's brooding dark fruit core and long savoury finish. Clearly an excellent Batailley.
