Batailley is the larger sibling of Haut-Batailley and is located in Paullac, just west of Chateau Latour. Classed as a Fifth Growth, it tends to punch well above it’s weight and has a reputation as a drinker’s claret.
Good concentration and weight with excellent length of flavour, this is drinking very well now. Chestnuts and mushrooms coming up under the stewed black plummy fruit. Succulent and satisfying.
Region: Pauillac, Bordeaux, France
Grape: Cabernet dominant
