A rich yet dry Pauillac that's now very attractive to drink and has a good harmony in spite of the generous alcohol. Long, supple finish. (JamesSuckling.com, March 2019). The finest Batailley I have had in many years (Robert Parker, Mar 2012).
Chateau Batailly is one of the oldest Bordeaux estates, dating from the early 1400s, and taking it's name from a famous battle which took place in 1452, during the Hundred Years War. The Estate split in 1942, with the smaller portion taking the name Chateau Haut Batailley.
The 60 hectares of vineyard are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Merlot (25%), Cabernet Franc (3%) and Petit Verdot (2%).
