Haut Batailley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Chateau Batailley is one of the oldest buildings in Pauillac and it has always appeared on the regional maps. The name is derived from the battles that took place during the 14th century on the plateau giving access to the nearby Chateau Latour. The Chateau is a fifth growth of the 1855 and the Casta familys flagship. The Chateau was re-styled in the 18th century, entailing the construction of vast cellars for ageing the wines. The Chateau is surrounded by a park covering 6 hectares which was redesigned in the 19th century by Barillet-Deschamps, the landscape gardener to Napoleon III. Batailleys wine is an intensive Pauillac typically with blackcurrant and a robust body. Grapes: 70% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet-Franc Vinification: The wine is vinified in the traditional manner and matured in Limousin oak barrels for 16-18 months Soil: Deep, poor gravel Production: 300,000 bottles Area: 90 Ha Vineyard: 55 Ha Classification: 5th Cru Classé
