Tasting Notes

Elegant, sweet and aromatic with lovely poise and balance. It has excellent definition on the palate with firm but refined tannins and a lovely freshness on the finish. The flavours are medium bodied, rather than full, with redcurrant and cassis notes and an attractive mineral character. Drink 2015 - 2025

Reviews & Scores

Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London. The Batailley 2010 has a vibrant lifted bouquet with blackberry, hints of black olive, cedar and a pinch of bay leaf. It is very precise and shows good attack. The palate is quite fleshy and succulent on the entry, perhaps belying the firm backbone underneath. It fans out beautifully towards the spicy finish, making this a superb Batailley that challenges the supremacy of the 2009. Excellent. Tasted November 2012.
