Notes
The 2020 Batailley is composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it reveals flashy scents of creme de cassis, redcurrant preserves, and wild blueberries, giving way to touches of violets, dark chocolate, camphor, and unsmoked cigars with a hint of cedar. The medium-bodied palate is chock full of bright, expressive cassis and red berry flavors, supported by fine-grained tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing with a mineral lift.

Château Batailley

Château Batailley

Chateau Batailley is a firm favourite of the British Claret drinker and proof that we brits don't hold grudges... Deriving its name from 'bataille', the vineyards are on the site of a French victory over the English in 1452 (during the Hundred Years War).

The estate was famously split by François and Marcel Borie in 1942. Francois, who had recently purchased Ducru Beaucaillou took control of the smaller portion and renamed his share 'Haut Batailley'. This still remains in the family and is managed with great success by Xavier Borie. Marcel, who kept the Chateau and the larger share of Batailley, passed the estate to his daughter Denise who was married to Emile Castéja of the negociants Borie Manoux. Since 2001 their son, Philippe has run the estate and his son Frédéric will one day also take up the reins.

Lying just to the West of Chateau Latour, the 57 hectares are planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot on deep gravel croupes. Batailley is never the most stylish Pauillac, but its reputation for consistent quality and good value makes it one of the most popular wines in the UK market.
