Chateau Batailley Pauillac 75cl
A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc cropped at 38hl/ha between 14th and 26th September. During the growing season they had to undertake two green harvests and also sorted the crop twice.
The nose reveals blackberry, cedar, a touch of oyster shell and just a very faint hint of orange blossom. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins on the entry. It demonstrates fine weight and cohesion, good substance and depth of fruit whilst the finish has touches of spice inflecting the blackberry and briary fruit. Fine and unashamedly very classic, as one would expect for Batailley.
