Batailley 2015 Revisited

Batailley 2015 is an exceptional Pauillac that has impressed wine enthusiasts with its exquisite blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot. The wine has consistently received high scores from renowned wine critics, making it a go-to choice for those searching for a refined and delicate Pauillac at the Cru level.

The wine's complexity is derived from ageing in 60% new oak, contributing to its striking energy and cut and creamy touch and finish. Moreover, bottle ageing also contributes to the wine's distinct personality and nuance. 

Neal Martin, who awarded this wine a V95, described it as a wine of class, pedigree, and nuance. He praised the wine's dark, purplish flavour profile, which includes graphite, smoke, violet, mint, dark cherry, and plum. The wine's striking energy and cut are noteworthy, making it stand out. Batailley is always a Pauillac with a distinct personality; this wine is no exception. It's also one of the overachievers of the year.

JS also awarded this wine a 95, highlighting its immediate appeal to the nose and palate with blackberries and dark plums. He also praised its chiselled tannins, long and fresh fruity finish, and spicy oak flavours.

RP awarded this wine a 95, commending its fruit intensity with blackberry, boysenberry, tobacco, and cedar aromas. The wine develops a subtle mint accent and gathers momentum in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, lithe tannin, well-balanced, and slightly tinniness that will disappear in the bottle. The pencil shaving sprinkled over the aftertaste has excellent substance and impressive length, making this classic Pauillac a wine you can enjoy for 25 or 30 years.
