Château Batailley Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Château Batailley, Grand Cru Classé 1855, is Borie-Manoux’s and the Castéja-family’s flagship. The name comes from the battle ("bataille“) that took place there during the 100-years war in 1453. During this battle, the French re-conquered the neighbouring Chateau Latour from the English troops, a crucial point for ending the 300 year long reign of the English in Aquitaine. In the 16th century, the first vines were planted on these historical and blood soaked grounds. Chateau Batailley’s 6ha park was designed by Barillet-Deschamps, Napoleon III’s park architect, in 1850. In 1855 Napoleon III created the classification for the Paris World exhibition, and Batailley was selected together with the 60 best Medoc Estates to form the Grand Cru Classé 1855 Classification.

Very herbaceous and minty nose, green notes battling with black currant fruit, bay leaf, marked by green – narrow and compressed entry, palate is full of green herbal tones and shallow fruit, some black fruit but green and a bit extracted right through the finish (83-84)

Lovely dark color. Discreet fruity and ripe nose. Smooth fruity rather fat and very charming on the palate. This is well done and delicious. My belief is that its nose will reveal itself more during barrel ageing. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com

Süssfruchtiges Bukett nach Cassis und Pflaumen, feine Röstaromen und zarte Bitterschokoladenoten. Feine würzige und pfefferige Aromen runden das Bukett ab. Weicher, schmelziger Auftakt, kräftige Struktur, dunkelbeeriger Fruchtextrakt und feine Röstaromen im harmonischen Abgang.

Tasting Notes:

Chateau Batailley 2007 is of purple colour and a fresh cassis fruit in the nose. Hints of violets, plums, blackberries and cherries, cedars, tobacco and chocolate. Elegant velvety tannins on the palate, dense with good depth, complex and a precise structure with a good definition of the fruit and a long finish.
