PRODUCT REVIEWS

One of our best-selling En Primeur wines and is therefore in many of your cellars, year in, year out - Château Batailley, a textbook Pauillac with exemplary structure and balance.

Since the introduction of Les Lions de Batailley 7 years ago, the winemaking team has been able to be much more selective in the grapes for this wine (in fact there 40% less Grand Vin is produced nowadays), and what was already a banker of a claret has seen its quality lift dramatically the 2020 is no exception, delivering stunning drinking pleasure already.

Given how good merlots are this year, the decision was taken to up the percentage of this variety in the blend to 26%, resulting in a particularly fleshy, seductive Batailley that will provide you with a moreish yet classy drinking claret in 10-15 years.

Critic reviews:
"The 2020 Batailley is quintessential Pauillac on the nose: very focused black fruit infused with cedar and graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, grippy tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Classic in style, this is lightly spiced, showing impressive depth toward the finish. This estate has enjoyed a good run of form in recent years and this 2020 continues that trend. If you love the style of Batailley, you will love this."
93-95 points, Neal Martin, Vinous

"Takes its time to unroll then shows sweetness to the black cherry and brambled blackberries fruits, followed by cigar, pencil lead and crushed stone. This is signature Batailley in that it has that essence-of-Pauillac feel. A delicious wine, such a great great drinking claret, really one to look out for in this vintage; already looking forward to drinking this in 10 years time. 2% Petit Verdot completes the blend. 60% new oak. A yield of 42hl/ha.  Drinking Window 2028 - 2042"
94pts, Jane Anson, www.decanter.com

" This is classically structured with a wonderful finish of extremely polished tannins and an ultra long finish. So much blackcurrant, spice and cedar. Seamless. 70% cabernet sauvignon and 26% merlot, the rest cabernet franc and petit verdot." 
94-95pts, James Suckling

"Dark fruit with cassis notes and a graphite edge. Fine attack, juicy and refreshing but backed by a firmness of structure behind. Solid, subdued and distinctly Pauillac. Still relative value. "  
17pts, James Lawther MW, JancisRobinson.com
