[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Batailley Pauillac Unreleased - - 92-93 95-96 17 91-94 -
Hide the tasting notes

85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, representing 70% of production. Rich and dense with lots of concentration of spiced black fruits. powerful but ripe tannins.

Score: 92 - 93 Albany Vintners

I thought the 2015 defined the new Batailley, but this is fantastic. Full-bodied and so tannic and powerful. Flavors of chocolate, coffee and spices. Excellent finish. Very muscular. Tight and precise.

Score: 95 - 96 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Lifted, sweet and very Pauillac on the nose. Thick and sweet on the palate though – rather different from the nose. Pretty sharp on the palate with some overtones of the right bank even though the nose is pure Pauillac. Quite a dramatic play, this wine! Drama in spades. (17+)

Enticingly fresh, this is open-knit in feel, offering a pretty display of cherry paste and red currant preserve flavors. A twinge of warm earth on the finish keeps this grounded and adds some needed bass.

Score: 91 - 94 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

A tunnel of tannins takes you right through the palate, but it is not fully walled in as with 2010, rather the tannins are pliable and the overall feeling is of well controlled fruit that deepens as you go along. The blend is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 12% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, and a pH of 3.6. Wonderfully deep fruit flavours of blackberry and crushed cassis reside against black chocolate and well contained tannins. A lovely vintage that has power but is just the right side of big extraction. Good persistency with a coffee-scented finish. This is a buy, for sure.

50% CS, 47% M, 3% PV. Attractive crunchy black fruit and a hint of hedgerow. Bright with good fresh fruit in the mouth and firm, angular tannins.

Score: 90 - 92 Albany Vintners

A juicy and pretty wine with berry and chocolate character, a medium body and a clean finish. Clearly better than the 2015.

Score: 91 - 92 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Deep crimson. Muted but 'correct' aromatically. Some richness on the front palate. Very dry finish. More flesh than usual and a good expression of vintage and estate. 16++

Hide the tasting notes

75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc. Expressive black stone fruit nose. Glossy mouthfeel, subtle concentration with a cool, clean finish and no hard edges.

Score: 91 - 93 Albany Vintners

Tight and linear on the palate with a lovely depth of fruit and polished tannins. Medium to full body and an attractive, fine-grained texture.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Dark purple. Very heady and rich on the nose. Super-luscious and easy to like with the richness of the appellation but not too much sweetness and certainly no oak or alcohol in evidence. Just not especially long but a decent effort.

Score: 16 - 17 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2023-2037

Juicy, with raspberry, blueberry and boysenberry pâte de fruit notes coursing through. Spice hints on the finish add range while energetic acidity keeps it all fresh. Delicious.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

This is the second vintage under new owners (Galleries Lafayette family), with Fabien Tetgien of Smith Haut Lafitte overseeing the winemaking and Vincent Priou heading up the team in Pomerol full time. This is an extremely promising wine, with damsons, graphite, and touches of chocolate and exotic spices, while the tannins are soft and plush even at this early stage. A sexy, polished wine that delivers on the vintage. 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc.

Score: 92 Decanter Maturity: 2025-2040

Is this the twin brother of the amazing 2015? We will see. What a superb density and richness with bright and intense tannins that are buttressed with fresh acidity. Beautiful finish.

Score: 98 - 99 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

90% Merlot, late picked. Made by Nicolas Thienpont. Very rich and edgy. Vegy edge. Massively ripe in the middle but not too ripe or sweet. Pretty dramatic. Dry end. Obviously classy stuff from a great terroir. (17+ Points)

Score: 17 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2025-2042

On the exotic side, with loganberry, acai and crushed plum notes forming the core, laced with singed mesquite and alder flavors and backed by a long, juicy, dark-profiled finish.

Score: 94 - 97 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Wow, that is rich, tight and closed in. It is absolutely dancing with minerality, and just gets better and better on the palate. It doesn't try to force itself on you, but it certainly walks in the room five paces ahead. This is what St-Émilion can do, and could always have done if it didn't try so hard. A beautiful deep colour and pure fruit, what a lovely fresh, lifted but concentrated wine. Nicolas Thienpont is consultant here.

Hide the tasting notes

A very dense and pretty center palate of dried fruit, spices and dried tobacco. Medium to full body, chewy tannins and a savory finish. Linear and racy. Tight and reserved now but wait to see the structure develop fabulously.

Score: 95 - 96 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

A Jean-Pierre Moueix wine. Sweet, relaxed nose. A little edge of damp webbing. Mid weight only, and less compelling than the run of top Pomerols tasted just beforehand. No trace of any forcing in the cellar but it seems a little tentative. Nice that it's not flashy. Quite serious intention here. (16.5+ Points)

Score: 16 - 17 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2025-2040

This is about as pure a beam of unadulterated cassis and cherry sauce as you can get, beautifully silky in feel and carrying through a very long, refined finish. The chalky echo is there, but it's really tucked away for now. Lilting incense hint in the background too.

Score: 95 - 98 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The epitome of St-Émilion plateau power and elegance, this is beginning to rival Canon. It has the deftly worked berry fruits, the creamy caress of cappuccino oak, the dancing minerality that gives focus, and a touch of austerity to the finish. An utterly lovely wine. 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc from 23.5ha consisting of Asteries limestone on the plateau and blue clay over limestone on the slopes.

Score: 96 Decanter Maturity: 2027-2050
