Chateau Batailley 5eme Cru Classe, Pauillac 2023

The first classified growth was released this morning at a price 13% below last year and is as good as... We visited the Château last week and were again deeply impressed with the... quality—fruit-forward with immense depth, fine tannins, elegant, and fresh with a lovely lasting Pauillac finish. Batailley is one of our most popular wines and the best value Pauillac classed growth, with many loyal followers. It is known for producing wines of consistently high quality and excellent value. Their 2023 vintage is a great example of the Château at its best. It is perfect for cellaring and is a sound investment-grade wine. The critics are as enthusiastic as we were—see below. “Beautiful fruit with currants and blackberries, as well as notes of walnuts and chocolate. So much blackberry fruit here. Aromatic. Medium to full-bodied with very fine tannins on the deep and structured palate. Racy and long finish. 79% cabernet Sauvignon, 19% merlot and 2% petit Verdot.” 95-96 Points, James Suckling “Dark purple colour with violet hue and almost black core. Very densely woven nose with aroma reminiscent of blackcurrants, blackcurrant spurs, ripe blackberries and elderberries, fine toasting, subtle oak. A wine with elegance, purity and great freshness, precision and purity. On the palate well balanced with ripe tannins, finely grained, complemented by juicy fruit quoting the nose, excellent structure and length. Another great Batailley.” 96 Points, Markus del Monego MW "You want to know what Pauillac tastes like, roll up and enjoy this vintage of Batailley. Squid ink, slate, cassis, bilberry, slate, crayon, black chocolate, plenty of tannic grip, a smudge of grilled cedar oak and a squeeze of mint, it's all here. 57% new oak for ageing. Harvest September 12 through to October 5, Axel Marchal consultant, Philippe and Frederic Castéja owners." 96 points Jane Anson

Lions de Batailley, Pauillac 2022

Quintessential Bordeaux from Château Batailley. We are delighted to offer their second label, Lions de Batailley (named after the Lions statues that guard the gate). Made from younger vines along... with some fruit that goes into their Grand Vin, it tastes reassuringly like the Batailley that we know and love. Wonderfully soft and approachable, mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and at only £18 per bottle , you can't go wrong... “pure and so pretty... full and very silky.” “Full and generous”.
