Tasting Notes

The 2019 Batailley is powerful and brooding in the glass. Dark fruit, leather, smoke, tobacco, cedar, game and grilled herbs add to an impression of virile intensity. It would be nice to see a bit more finesse.

Score: 89 - 91

Deep purple-hued, the 2019 Château Batailley offers a classy, Pauillac bouquet of blackcurrants, spicy oak, cedarwood, and tobacco leaf. With plenty of minerality, medium body, and ripe tannins, it's certainly an outstanding Pauillac that will keep for two decades.

Score: 90 - 92

The 2019 Batailley, picked 16 September until 7 October, has an impressive bouquet with plenty of concentration, though it manages to remain the traditional classic style associated with this Pauillac estate. Blackberry, forest floor and freshly rolled tobacco burst from the glass, demonstrating fine purity and delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. I was most impressed by the balance and poise, almost as if it has a newfound sophistication very evident on the finish. This is a superb Batailley, one of the finest that I have encountered in recent years.

Score: 94 - 96

More Pauillac character than the Lynch Moussas, this is where you get the characteristic slate, pencil lead and menthol against the beautiful rich cassis and a confident tannic frame. I've had a number of 2009 and 2010 vintages of Batailley recently that have totally sung at 10 years old and you can easily see that this vintage will deliver the same enjoyment.

Score: 94

A very cabernet-driven red with currants, light cedar, vanilla and flowers. It’s full-bodied, tight and powerful. Impressive finish. Classic. 74% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot and 1% petit verdot.

Score: 95 - 96
