This 2015 vintage of Château Batailley is a typical well structured Pauillac with good intensity and depth, seamless tannins and a good level of acidity, very approachable to drink now but can also be cellared for 15 years+.
James Suckling (95 points) - 'Impressive depth to the wine from the outset with a gently smoky edge to the ripe blackberries, blueberries and red plums. Some attractive spicy oak here, too. The mid-weight palate has a very composed and linear shape with a long, succulent and regal finish. Great polish and balance here; the structure is superb'.
Grape(s): 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot
